Being part of Glasswing International has been the most rewarding experience I have had.
It has given me a lot of new conceptions of reality by teaching to poor, needy and endangered students that are beneficiary from this NGO. The program consists of clubs (English, Debate, Discovery, Glee, etc) that are given after their regular school classes. They are motivated to create, invent, and be part a team and work all together. This program has changed schools, paradigms, students' lives, communities and my life... And, do you know the best part? It's just the beginning...

Glasswing ha sido para mí, un programa multidisciplinario en donde tanto alumnos como voluntarios educadores crecemos. Realmente se esmeran en conseguir a los candidatos ideales para impartir las clases, sabiendo que somos nosotros quiénes seremos el modelo a seguir por tantos chicos, y Glasswing se esfuerza porque seamos uno muy positivo. Desde las inducciones, capacitaciones y seguimientos, Glasswing brinda las herramientas para que más y más niños sean beneficiados de sus programas.

Es una bonita experiencia formar parte de el voluntariariado de glasswing porque me ha enseñado que hay muchas maneras de cambiar el mundo enseñando las cosas que tiene cada club asi como expresar los sentimientos en lo que es el baile asi como hacer experimentos que jamas creiamos que no podiamos hacer asi como transmitir lo que es divertirse en el futbol sin necesidad de sentirse mal por una derrota esto hace que mi voluntariado sea mas interesante cada dia que pongo un pie en el lugar que imparto la tematica del club gracias a glasswing por tomarme en cuenta para formar parte de este bonito voluntariado

I've been part of Glasswing since march of this year and I'm so grateful with the experience they've given me. I'm part of the Debate C lub and besides I'm the volunteer, I learn new things everytime I'm with the kids.
El Salvador is full of political, economic, social problems, etc. And that's the main reason that makes me want to try to do something for my country and my people. From my perspective, I thinks it's so unfair that the reality of our country affects our children that much, the salvadorean education is basic and -in the most cases- precarious.
Glasswing have given me the oportunity to DO SOMETHING instead of keep watching the news and feel sad.
That's why I'm so grateful with this ONG, and I'm happy to be part of their projects because it's good to the people I give something and they give me happiness, friendship, experience and the satisfaction for being helpful for El Salvador and the world.

El apoyar estos programas en comunidades de escasos recursos contribuyen a edificar nuevas sociedades, donde los jóvenes aprenden a valorar sus potencialidades en la adquisición de nuevos aprendizajes y lo gratificante es que ellos van adquiriendo una visión distinta de su vida. Lo mas importante es la obtención de conocimientos significativos para el desarrollo de su vida diaria.

Being a volunteer at Glasswing has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever had because of the wonderful programs they have to help people in need not only once but for a lifetime. They focus especially on children whose futures are changed forever thanks to the education projects they have such as the project ''Mi escuela, mi espacio'' in which they learn about different fields (english, science, dancing, etc). This really makes a difference in children's lives.

Glasswing opened my eyes to the needs of my community and how I could contribute to change children's reality by sharing my knowledge with them.

It really helps communities developing in many aspects. I am a volunteer in a debate club and its wonderful being part of the process of this kids growth. They are full of potential and Glasswing can see that.

La experiencia es increíble, es bonito compartir con personas que quieran cambiar la sociedad y aquí encontramos herramientas para hacerlo. Me gusta la manera en que el ambiente se desarrolla entre voluntarios y el servicio que le brindan a la comunidad o centros educativos. Mi experiencia ha sido muy buena y motivadora a cambiar mi país.
