I volunteered with the Center of Help for 4.5 years doing data entry and administrative assistant duties. They are a wonderful non-profit that serves the Latino/Hispanic population in Maryland. The Center offers ESOL and Computer classes, assistance, and educational programs for children, all within a family-like setting. This was a wonderful environment.
