Jonathan served in the city of Elbasan with an Italian-run, non-governmental organization, CEFA. With the goal of assisting victims of trafficking, the Roma (or gypsy) community and other less fortunate members of Albanian society, he assisted in project writing and grant finding through two local organizations started by CEFA. Outside of the office, Jonathan helped found an environmental club for local high school students, created a film festival around the topic of AIDS awareness, took a team to the Special Olympics, and, as with many volunteers outside of the TEFL program, begrudgingly taught English.
