Jean is a graduate from the University of St. Andrews who has recently returned from a four month voluntary placement in Ghana where she helped lead a team of young British and Ghanaian volunteers on an inclusive education project. In this role, Jean contributed to the engagement of rural communities in the importance of education and supporting children throughout their educational journey, regardless of their gender or disability status. Additionally, she was responsible for the personal development of the young volunteers - facilitating their skills growth and helping them widen their perspectives to become engaged, global citizens.
She is a trained outdoor instructor, with qualifications in Sailing, Canoeing and Mountaineering. With a degree in French and Spanish, Jean aims to combine her educational background in communications, with her experience as an instructor, to help coordinate and enable volunteers at Caplor Horizons to use their unique strengths to bring about positive change.
Jean first worked with Caplor Horizons in mid-2015 and contributed to work with various organisations then, including the Marine Conservation Society, Bees for Development and Haygrove. Jean also co-authored a substantial resource paper on triple bottom line.
