I volunteered for this wonderful program several years ago and found the experience to be so rewarding. I loved working with the students, learning about their concerns and issues and helping them to understand the importance of community, self respect and genuine regard for others. What a great time I had watching the high school kids playing with and taking care of the young children! It's a fabulous program and a treasure to be sustained.
