Be Like Brit – Haiti

Every year students have the opportunity to volunteer at Be Like Brit. Activities include painting; helping to build or repair a home for a community family; planning educational, play, and art activities for the children; and learning about Haitian culture and history.

Dr. Debbie Pallatto-Fontaine, faculty member and group leader, is on the Be Like Brit Program Committee and offers staff development training to the caregivers and teachers at Be Like Brit. Students in Becker College education and psychology programs are especially encouraged to volunteer at the orphanage either as part of a course or during the summer.
