I volunteered at the Women's Intercultural Center for the past few months. I was impressed by the wide variety of cultural events and social services that they offer to the local community. The topics of classes range from the English language, Zumba, guitar, and U.S. Citizenship. They also host a variety of other programs and services to community, focusing on culture and empowering women. Overall, it is a great place and I learned a lot from my volunteer experience there!

I did service learning hours at the Women's Intercultural Center and it was a great experience. They treat people with respect and dignity without distinctions, even though the center is intended to help transform the lives of women they also open their doors to men and children. It is a place where you can see a multicultural agency developing where stereotypes are breaking down and consciousness is being raised.

As a current volunteer at the Women's Intercultural Center I can honestly say that that I have enjoyed my time being here because of the friendly environment and especially the goal of this program. I have always enjoyed working/helping others but the people I have worked with in this center have true potential at what they do therefore to me it has made them some of the most welcoming and hardworking people I have ever interacted with. I am very thankful for being given the great opportunity of being of service to a program that is of great help to the people in the Anthony community.

When I volunteered at the center, I had the opportunity to meet some great people there. The women that run the center are so friendly and welcoming, they make the center feel like home. Not only that, but the classes they offer are spectacular. They have a wide range of classes and most, if not all, are in Spanish which is great for our community. They also have a thrift shop where most everything is 25 cents; this helps the center raise money and also helps community members that might not have sufficient resources to buy as $25 shirt. Overall, my experience at the center was amazing and I encourage everyone in the area to drop by sometime.

During my volunteer time here, I helped set up for a toy drive that would contribute to the local childrens hospital. It was a wonderful experience and the staff were wonderful as well. They are kind, friendly and very understanding. I most definitely recommend this organization for anyone looking to give back to the community.

Volunteering at the Women's Intercultural Center was a great experience. I am fascinated by all the classes they offer here. It is a great environment to work in, very peaceful and the people i worked with were very pleasant. It is good to know that women in our community have a place they can go to if they need help. I am thinking of returning to take some of the classes. I had a great time, Thank you for having me.

By doing my volunteer service at Women's Intercultural Center, I noticed the center needs as well as how they helped people. The center helps people to succeed as well as help them with any issues they might have. It was an awesome experience to be a volunteer because of all the different things I learned. I will share my experience with my classmates. Thank you so much.

I am from the community, and I did not know this organization existed until I started my Service Learning hours for a class I am taking. I was impressed with the Women's Intercultural Center, both in the building's architecture and with the work they are doing in the local community. Everyone who works at the Center has certainly achieved creating a safe haven for women to take classes to further their education, and to relax by going to yoga, zumba, or reiki. I greatly enjoyed volunteering at this Center; it is a very happy place to be.

The Women's Intercultural Center empowers women of color and other communities of color. It teaches those who arrive the tools needed to navigate, succeed and survive in the U.S. The program I worked in was called "Remapping Our Home" and we learned what the community has to offer us in hopes of becoming more active in the community. There's a very strong sense of solidarity among every women that arrives in the center and strong bonds of friendship are formed.

During my time at the Women's Intercultural Center I learned of the center's mission to empower women and people in general. I assisted mostly with compiling a guide with resources for the community. This gave me the opportunity to see the needs of people and how the center can refer them to the proper resources. I believe this agency is doing their job in meeting the community's needs from different aspects including the need of volunteers to complete community service. I enjoyed my time and hope to be able to be a participant in the future.
