Review for Journeys Within Our Community, Truckee, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a one-stop shop for those wanting a more in depth experience of SE Asian culture, and those wanting to know their money is making a direct impact.

Win Win Win in Cambodia with JWOC.
Part of our lodging expenses supported JWOC's work.
Volunteering in JWOC's reading program gave us a fun/direct experience with students.
Touring with JWOC allowed us to go "off tour" to see our tour guide's old school and meet family.

Win in Laos too.
Traveling without JWOC in Laos, but knowing the quality of JWOC's work, we now support a student in Laos via JWOC.

Hello Don Thank you for your lovely review! I'd just like to share for others that are also interested in traveling in SE Asia that you traveled not with JWOC but Journeys Within Tour Company (http://www.journeys-within.com/). JWOC and Journeys Within Tour Company were founded by the same great people but operate separately. Best wishes Nicola ( Managing Director at JWOC)

 

Review for Alive & Free/Omega Boys Club, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

"a Children's War". These are the three words, that caught my attention 13 years ago when reading Dr. Joe Marshall's book "Street Soldier", describing the youth on youth violence that occurs in most major cities in America. In... America. Dr Marshall sees violence as a disease, that is infecting many of our youth. Seeing violence as a disease makes it possible to diagnose, treat, and cure the "disease" with the Omega methodology. I've watched Omega remove the "infected thinking" from kids caught up in the streets. Omega then sends them off to college, and these young scholars go on to lead productive, not destructive, lives. He's been doing this successfully for 25 years here and abroad. Come visit if you can. Omega (Alive & Free) is a great investment.
