Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., New Bedford, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I spent three weeks working with Harriet and T.L. for the Hands in St. Lucia. I have worked for many charitable organizations and find that none works more diligently, efficiently or earnestly to serve their cause. Hands Across the Sea supports and sustains literacy by collaborating with students, teachers, Peace Corps Volunteers, librarians, principals and Ministry of Education officials to create and enhance libraries in classrooms, schools and communities. Working with Peace Corps Volunteers to clean out and organize their school libraries, was my favorite part because I got my hands dirty, saw real improvemnet and met lots of students and teachers who appreciated the work we were doing together. As a teacher on sabbatical, I liked experiencing Caribbean schools from the inside. I especially loved reading with students and helping them choose titles from the all the beautiful new books. This work was very fulfilling.

Review for Blue Hill Troupe, LTD, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with the Blue Hill Troupe for over fifty years. Here is a group in which your volunteer efforts not only make a difference to the charity we support each year, but also enrich your body, mind and heart. Whether you are singing on stage or helping produce the show from backstage, there is lots of physical activity, so much to learn and you'll make some of the best friends of your life as you work and play together!
