The Women's Intercultural Center is a blessing to the community. Helping women empower themselves with skills which enable them to support and enhance their families is an everyday affair at the Center. Operated with sincere caring and concern, I have witnessed women transform before my eyes!! Mary Carter, director, has an authentic passion for helping others and it is exemplified through the participants, volunteers, and donors. i feel embraced with hope and love every time i walk through the doors. This Center epitomizes what helping one another is truly about. I am so grateful to be a part of such an endeavor.

Coming to the womans cultural center has been a great experience for me. Coming to zumba has helped me with my physical and mental health. It is a great place for woman to come and get together for a good cause. I believe it has helped all the woman in this community to stay healthy as we do not have many activities here in to town of Anthony.

I was originally brought to the Center by my friend Saif because he volunteers there as well. He asked me if I would be willing to take time to come in and help him pick up donations as well as strategizing ways to boost fundraising and create programs for the youth. I was hesitant at first but I decided to go with. After taking the time to volunteer and visit to the Center, I was amazed at how much work they do and how many people they help throughout the year. They truly are beneficial to not only the Anthony community but the surrounding communities such as El Paso and Las Cruces. The people that I met that we were helping really changed my life. I realized what was important and how we needed to lend a hand. They brought me in with welcome arms and so did I. I am still working with Saif in fundraising and also creating programs for all the youth to help them develop as individuals and also work the border awareness experience to teach individuals around the globe about the important of border and immigration issues.

I began volunteering at the Center back in July and it was a great opportunity for me to give back to the community. One of my closest friends volunteers there as well and that is how I originally learned about the Center. Upon my arrival to Center it was a truly life-changing experience just walking through those doors. Everyone was so kind with me and brought me in like I was family. At the time I was helping the Center pick up donations, working in their thrift store, and being trained to help the Border Awareness Experience Director run the Border Awareness Experience. I was able to learn so much just with the few months of time I put in there. I will be helping with the Border Awareness Experience groups next year and I am really excited because it is something I had not done before. Volunteering at the Center has given me not only a great experience but has allowed me to grow a lot as an individual. I set aside whatever time I can to go to the Center and help them anyway possible. If you want a great volunteering experience this is one of the places to go.

Just a couple weeks ago I spent a week with the Women's Intercultural Center in there Border Awareness Experience (BAE) and it really impacted my life. Seeing the border and really experiencing the humanity behind the issue changed the way I approached the topic of immigration. So many people hold inappropriate opinions of immigration and the migrants themselves. Before the trip my opinion was shortsighted in many ways. But the Women's Intercultural Center put together the BAE and changed the way I thought about migration. I really enjoyed talking to all of the nonprofits and government organizations that the Women's Intercultural Center presented to us. I loved the border patrol tour and just seeing the fence and how migrants really struggle to live in America. Lastly, I really loved just being at the center, they really treated us well and I felt at home the whole time I was there. Getting to see how the organization empowers women in a culture where it is hard for women to find their identity was refreshing and enlightening. They are really changing lives and even though they are really just "fixing" one aspect of the issue of immigration on the border, the educational experience they offer through the BAE taught me that that is probably the best way to really help the problem. It's going to take a lot of people doing their part to focus on the humanity of the issue. That was by far the most important lesson I learned at the Women's Intercultural Center

The women's center has been a place to meet with other women who are trying to become more independent, diverse, and educated in all areas. This could include English, art, computer, cooking, etc.

Nine students from my school including myself visited the Women's Intercultural Center Inc to learn more about immigration policy in the US and how it affects both the US and Mexico. We visited an array of organizations including La Fe and the Border Patrol itself. This presented a very unbiased and holistic view of the immigration problem in America.

I volunteered at the Center because the Technology Director Saif recruited me on to do some construction at the Center. I honestly must say I though it would be a simple job get in and get out. Now I'm not saying that the job was hard it was actually pretty simple but I have never been so astounded by a non-profit. This was truly an amazing organization as you can see the results of the organizations impact on the community the second you walked in the door. All I was doing was basic work such as fixing the roof and replacing doors, but everyone there treated me like family. They fed me lunches and brought me drinks because they were thankful for the work I was doing. Although what impressed me the most was that they kept inviting me to join them for their classes. I decided to take some time and check out the painting class. I was hesitant at first because I can't draw or paint but they welcomed me with open arms. Everyone in the class including the instructor walked me through and gave me great tips on how to paint. They were patient with me and needless to say in the end I learned a lot and was very proud of my painting. No other place can match up to this center as they are truly welcoming and the second you come in you feel like family. I send my best to the future of the Center.

New Mexico State University's Service Learning Office in the College of Education introduced so many of us to this organization and the good they have to offer...by being one of their participating community agencies it has introduced many of us to volunteer in return for the good of our local communities and citizens!
