Review for American Jewish World Service, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AJWS is a first class organization! I spent a summer volunteering with them in Uganda and another summer in Cambodia. The orientation material was outstanding as was the application process. I felt well looked after even though I was half way around the world from the NY office. Both placements had in-country reps and I was connected with other volunteers who I would meet up with in the capitals once or twice. The two NGOs were great matches for my administrative and teaching skills. Thank you AJWS!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

over the top competent and committed!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
