SPIRITUALITY FOR KIDS INTERNATIONAL INC
October 31, 2012

This was my first true voluntary volunteer opportunity that truly changed my life and continues to do so.

My family came in contact with this organization many years back and always told me great things about it. At the time I was in another state so I wasn't able to partake, but a few years later I got the opportunity and the rest is history.

I joined as a volunteer doing whatever I could from translating to setting up for events and classes. A year into that I was given the opportunity to become one of the few full time staff members in one of their US offices.

Through this I was able to see first hand for 6+ years the transformation that came through the knowledge that was given to individuals through this program. Overall it gives you a true perspective on yourself and how your actions impact your family, community and ultimately the world. And all of this was achieved through fun classes that included games and activities that focused on the various learning styles so everyone was able to grasp all the concepts taught in each class.

A lot of the concepts taught through this program are concepts we have all grown up hearing about such as cause and effect, treat other as you would like to be treated and several others. But the challenge with these types of concepts is that there not always easy to convey to people, but SFK was able to accomplish that.

And for that reason I keep trying to follow the lessons that I learned and taught while there. Because I know the positive impact it can have on people and their lives.
