Ser voluntaria para Glasswing constituye una de mis mejores experiencias, soy psicóloga y definitivamente he encontrado un lugar cuya labor genera un gran impacto en las comunidades, la educación y las oportunidades para los niños y jóvenes de lugares vulnerables, permite romper esquemas, prejuicios y les dan las herramientas para seguir construyendo sueños y realizarlos. Es una gran organización!!!

Todo el equipo de Glasswing me ha gustado mucho, el apoyo que brindan a las comunidades es muy bueno y la forma en que nos incluyen en los grupos de trabajo es muy satisfactorio.

Este año tomé la decisión de trabajar como voluntario en el club de Robótica. Por casi 10 años trabaje como docente y pude ver como la ausencia de herramientas limitaba el aprendizaje considerablemente.

Junto a Glasswing y las herramientas que brinda, podemos aprender mucho más, conocimientos y disciplinas que antes eran únicamente alcanzadas para cierta población, hoy se llevan al alcance de muchos, herramientas que no solo promueven una educación en contexto académico si no también, personal, de valores, intelectual y social.

Mi satisfacción ha sido realmente plena, no solo poder enseñarles o facilitarles el manejo de robots, armar, o la lógica de programación, sino también la responsabilidad, el liderazgo y muchas cualidades que van desarrollando en el camino, y a cambio he podido ver muchas sonrisas, lo cual es el más grande estimulo que pueda recibir.

This summer I had the opportunity to do an internship with Glasswing International in El Salvador. Working in Glasswing opened my eyes to several realities my country and several other countries in Latin America are facing. Glasswing gave me the opportunity of working with their marketing and communications team, since I am majoring in Marketing and International Business with a minor in Human Services, and I got to plan and give my ideas to help the organization. The thing I appreciated the most about Glasswing was that they recieved my ideas with an open mind and considered me part of their team, making me feel more comfortable and confident with the ideas I had. Also, I really like that I got to participate in several of their volunteer activities which helped me learn more about Glasswing and all the amazing things they do.

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...

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.

Cada dia aprendo mas de los chicos y da tanta satisfacción cuando escuchamos lo que piensan sus inquietudes etc. Conocer a ptofundidad y darse cuenta aun cada vez mas las capacidades qje tienen de poder crear y pensar para que este mundo mejore, eso me fascina, la habilidad de reflexionar sobre sus necesidades y las de su alrededor eso precisamente motiva, el entusiasmo el que ellos se sientan aceptados que son parte de un grupo, esas cosas los motivan a ellos pues es lo que todo ser humano merece y necesita. Soy Berenice estoy con el club de liderazgo y he crecido mas como persona y como profesional. Bonita experiencia que me ha regalado Glasswing. Puedo ser agente de cambio.

My experience with Glasswing has been gratifying, with Glasswing I have had the opportunity to learn about what is the reality that the students in some schools in my country (El Salvador) live, but not only meet but also I have had the opportunity to observe through indicators of impact that the assistance that provides Glasswing to help students is real, bring something to their lives and even helps them define their goals, for example in a survey I did as a volunteer of monitoring and evaluation team when I did the question why you decided to register to communications club? to a girl student, she answered because that would help me in my future, and when I ask the question about what she thought of these programs? she told me that are programs that help young people to change their future to use their time in healthy activities and help them to aspire to more; Thanks to this kind of responses I know that as volunteer of Glasswing I'm contributing something more than just my time to my country, I know I can help shape the future of my country.

Es una organizacion genial! Ayuda de verdad y no solo lo dice sino que de verdad se ve que cumple sus metas. Las experiencias que e vivido con los diferentes grupos dentro de esta organizacion son de lo mejor. Se nota que luchan con ganas por cumplir sus metas y lo hacen porque de verdad quieren hacer un cambio en la vida de las personas a las que benefician, sean ninos o adultos. A pesar que comense aqui por hacer mi servicio social quiero seguir ayudando a una organizaacion que de verdad me gusta por todo lo que hace y como lo hace.

I'm a English teacher as a volunteer, I had always wanted to learn English, learn to teach, but at my country in my conditions was very difficult, nowadays I'm trying to learn more because I'm not bilingual, I like teaching English, that's the reason why I'm with you!

Thanks!

I learned a lot being a volunteer, because this is the way that I return to life and God a little piece of, God and Life has given to me.
Beyond to be "el profe" I am learning every class from students in San José de la Montaña schooll.
My favorite story was when some visitors from Caribeann Countries of UNICOMER came to the schooll and the students said them "Leaderships Club is my favorite time and I want to say thanks to Glasswing and Unicomer, but I want say Thanks a Lot to my teacher, because I've learned from him". that was great and priceless.
When a Caribean Visitor asked to me "Why are you a volunteer?", So that l was the most easy question during all my volunteer time, this is my response: "This is the way that I am leaving the World better that I found it".
