Lacrosse the Nations (LtN) is partnering with Manna Project International, whose mission is to foster communities of young adults and encourage them to use their passions and education in service to communities in need. LtN was co-founded by Middlebury alum Brad Corrigan ’96, maybe best known for forming the band Dispatch. They have sites in Ecuador, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Manna is looking for program directors (PDs) to be on the ground in Nicaragua beginning in July of this year.
This is a 13-month position, from January 2012- August 2012 or July 2012 to August 2013. Some of the programs that current PDs run include Micro Finance, English classes at all levels, sports programs, and health initiatives. As we develop this partnership, we are helping recruit a Manna PD that will implement a new lacrosse program in one of the communities where Manna is already working as well as work in other current Manna programs. PDs live together near the communities of focus to encourage a sense of community within each other and provide each other with support as they work together in various service initiatives.
