Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The teacher had the students write letters, but they didn't always fit the time line I was given. I can understand it may be difficult to stay on schedule with a whole class. As I understand it, a student can't get their letter from their epal until every student has received a letter. That may be one reason my epal and I were on different books at times.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
My volunteer experience allowed me to feel like I still had a hand in a classroom. I so missed working with children, and this allowed me to enjoy what I love best about teaching.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
I was so excited to work with and learn about my epal. I felt like there was not a good sense of closure at the end of the year because our timing seemed off. I know we both enjoyed writing and getting to know each other.
