Through my experience as a volunteer here, I witnessed firsthand the profoundly positive impact that the organization had on its clients, volunteers, and staff alike. The essence of this agency is a collective, collaborative effort which gives a helping hand and a voice to all that it serves. Through The Cambodian Family's wide array of services, the place helps foster a sense of empowerment and belonging for the residents of Orange County. Adults and children are encouraged to pursue their aspirations and goals and are given opportunities and assistance in doing so. While my work with the youth program focused on teaching music and academic subjects, I believe I learned more from the children than they did from me about things such as leadership, communication, acceptance, understanding, culture, and what it means to serve your community. I could feel the positive impact that the organization had on me and the widened sense of understanding and perception that I gained after my time working there, and it was frankly one of the greatest things I have done in my life. From the after-school youth programs to community health service workshops, employment services, holiday festivities and celebrations, cultural dance performances, guest speakers, and even English and history classes offered by the agency, The Cambodian Family does everything possible in its role of making the world a better place.
