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".

La primera vez que fuimos a dibujar al parque mejor conocido como "El Cafetalón", ya que al dia siguiente llegaba la empresa voluntaria me di cuenta lo importante que era ayudarlos para que ayudaran, ya que es un parque de mucha afluencia en el cual muchas spersonas y familias se beneficiaron de la renovacion del parque.

Mis experiencias durante el voluntariado han sido tantas y cada una igual de especial que las demás. Una de las que puedo compartir y cada vez que puedo siempre lo hago es cuando estaba dibujando murales en una escuela en el área de parvularia y como de costumbre los niños se acercaban a ver lo que hacia, pero lo que toco mi corazón fue que un niño con capacidades especiales se me acerco y me dio un abrazo me dijo Muchas gracias por hacer mas bonita mi escuela, y con ello descubrí que la mejor retribución de los que hago es que a los niños les guste lo que hago.

Muy agradable, dibujando y pintando murales. Compartiendo con niños y adultos para ayudar en un bien social y cultural. Me gustó también, compartir con los compañeros de Glasswing y que todos nos llevaramos bien bien.

I have been a volunteer educator for 4 consecutive years, first leading a club in storytelling, then arts, and currently debate. Glasswing has provided me with the support, tools, manual, and training to work with youth-at-risk. Through Glasswing, I am able to work with promising youth who need role models in their lives. There are competitions and educational field trips that for many provide a unique opportunity to see the world outside of their community. Glasswing treats volunteers like family.

I'm journalist student who found out about Glasswing and started to help them, visiting communities and taking pictures for their social networks. One day, I went to a community in Coatepeque, Santa Ana. I started to take pictures of the people who lived there. I remember there was a group of kids who were playing in the ground and when they saw my camera, they frozed and stopped playing. I decided to put away my camera and started to play with. They were a little bit shy at first, but then, they started to play with me.
After a while, a 4 year-old girl comes at me and says: "wha's your name?" My name is Hugo, I said. She answers: "Are you coming tomorrow too? Please, come play with us".

That was one of the most rewarding experience of my life. I'll never forget Cindy. I fell for that community and I visit them everytime I have the chance. I'm glad I chose Glasswing, I wouldn't imagine any other way. I'm proud to say that I volunteer at Glasswing and I invite people everytime I get chance.

Glasswing's approach to the development of Central American youth is extremely innovative: it's not about identifying what is missing but what already exists and could be put to better use. This organization's goals are noble and yet realistic-- by using the strengths of volunteers and its expertise in health & education Glasswing will continue to improve the lives of thousands of children and young people. Including mine!!! I've learned so much.. Gracias #GlasswingPride

Yo recien inicie mi experiencia de voluntario hace unos meses. Y ha sido suficiente para darme cuenta lo importante de la existencia de Glasswing en la vida de todos los niñ@s y jovenes. Incluso el impacto positivo que causa en la vida de voluntario y la conciencia social que causa en la comunidad general.
