Volunteer Testimonials

“I felt that it was a very eye opening experience. Not only for the students, but for the volunteers as well. I had a previous understanding of the challenges surrounding poverty, but it can be easy to get caught up in day-to-day life and found that this was a very grounding experience for me. Would highly recommend to anyone!”

“The changes in the students' attitudes during the day from being judgemental and making assumptions to being humble and respectful was beautiful to watch.”

“Youth are far more intuitive, caring and engaged than we give them credit for.”
