Core team and volunteers

The iVolunteer portal is run 100% by volunteers, a blessing we always acknowledge. From web design, editorial ‘structuring’, writing, editing and publishing, to social marketing, communications, networking and resource generation, everything here is volunteer effort.

Core Team 2011:






Ryan Anthony M. Bestre
Ryan is currently working as an Englsih as a Second Language Teacher and Special Events Coordinator. He is an environmentalist and volunteer at heart and is passionate about the environment, community work, performing, traveling, culture and people.

Julie T. Chan 

In the few years that Julie has been volunteering, she has learned to appreciate the poetry written by people who have experienced mental illness, the inspiring stories of volunteers, and the meaning of true stewardship of God’s creation. As our world faces the grave consequences of energy descent and environmental degradation, we invoke the spirit of volunteering in practicing conservation, cooperation and creative community solutions to save, heal and nurture the Earth.
