I began volunteering at the Center back in July and it was a great opportunity for me to give back to the community. One of my closest friends volunteers there as well and that is how I originally learned about the Center. Upon my arrival to Center it was a truly life-changing experience just walking through those doors. Everyone was so kind with me and brought me in like I was family. At the time I was helping the Center pick up donations, working in their thrift store, and being trained to help the Border Awareness Experience Director run the Border Awareness Experience. I was able to learn so much just with the few months of time I put in there. I will be helping with the Border Awareness Experience groups next year and I am really excited because it is something I had not done before. Volunteering at the Center has given me not only a great experience but has allowed me to grow a lot as an individual. I set aside whatever time I can to go to the Center and help them anyway possible. If you want a great volunteering experience this is one of the places to go.
