René Alberto Vargas Zamora, from Nicaragua, is a Team Leader working alongside the 10,000th ICS volunteer Harry Shepherd. Together the two 25 year olds are supporting communities to respond to the environmental challenges posed by climate change and manage their natural resources.

"I applied to volunteer with ICS because I was very interested in the opportunity to lead a team in planning and completing a project, from start to finish. I wanted to put myself in an unfamiliar situation and do the best I can.

"The training and team-building so far have not been easy but nothing I haven’t been able to handle. Naturally, challenges have emerged along the way, in different dimensions – although I haven’t let them deteriorate my willpower.

"I hope I will gain insight and a different perspective on the challenges people face on a daily basis in my country and an understanding of what must be considered to improve their quality of life.

"To be one in ten thousand ICS volunteers makes me feel optimistic and hopeful that a new generation will have a true globalized mentality and won’t allow borders stop other people from offering their help in whichever way posible to those in need.

"Young people should apply to volunteer with ICS because they must recognize that past generations have followed a pattern that has given us the situation we all face and share today. If we empower ourselves and truly place our desires for a different world in motion, only then will things change."
