I was able to volunteer with PhilanthroTeach during a resume writing session for refugee youth. First, the executive director was diligent in providing a variety of materials to support my teaching of the class. He was quick to respond to my questions and very appreciative of the work of the volunteers. During the volunteer session, I had an incredibly engaged group of young men. They were not held back by their limited language skills nor were they shy to ask questions. I was struck by the sincere respect these young men had toward the PhilanthroTeach team. To add, seeing the executive director engage with and relate to the youth was inspiring for his team. He knew all of the participants by name and spoke with them one on one, volunteering to work with them outside of the time allotted for the workshop in order to really affect their understanding of the content. I could not be more pleased with my experience with PhilanthroTeach!
