Joe Duprey is serving as the Sister Islands’ 2014 Office Volunteer. Joe was a member of the 2008 student delegation and returned to Ometepe in 2009 with a Special Needs delegation comprised primarily of adults. He also served as a student board member.

Joe graduated from Oberlin College in 2013 with a major in Hispanic Studies.

The one-year position, often held by a recent college graduate from Bainbridge, is a great way to become deeply immersed in the Ometepe culture. We pay travel expenses and a modest stipend, and provide a small apartment at our office in Altagracia.
