My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Goodwill Group Foundation Inc, Northboro, MA, USA
I feel privileged to have been volunteering at Goodwill since 2010. The staff, as the first point of contact , are knowledgeable, dedicated, friendly, make you want to return to continue giving your best efforts. They follow up on the class progress , listen to any difficulties you may encounter and seek solutions, and always keep the interests of the students paramount. Ah ! the students , their eagerness to learn make you realise the importance of education as a stepping stone to a better quality of life and the impact it can have on their lives and their children's lives. It makes you appreciate that you can make a difference and you feel humbled by the experience. Whether to evolve an practical teaching system for usage in daily conversation in their workplace or tailor make a work vocabulary relevant to their employment is always fun. To know you can be a tool to open their eyes, ears and minds to the the ever changing world is also satisfying. You can never under estimate the importance of communication skills and how it can change your attitude, bolster your confidence and give you a much needed lift. Being a volunteer here teaches me never to take anything for granted. It is gratifying work and I do get fulfillment and pride from their progress and their determination to better themselves. I always harbour the thought ..."there but for the grace of God, go I"
To the staff and the students of Goodwill, know that I get back from you as much I am able to give. It is truly a two way street. Together, we can strive forward
