Punctuation within a sentence

0

Grammarly is indicating that I need to replace the semi-colon with a comma after community projects since the conjunction "and" joins two independent clauses. I do not agree since the final clause is part of a series of activities and they(series) are more than three. Your assistance would be appreciated on this issue.

Some of the opportunities included: serving as a member of several nonprofit organizations; providing mentorship to university students in my country; working with and supporting my children in several of their school and community projects; and leading a regional team of representatives from the Caribbean and Latin America in the resolution of financial matters.

See example:
