Review for Outreach International, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned about Outreach International thru a children's education program called 'Caribbean Kids,' where the goal of helping others to help themselves was expressed so clearly, and was such a new idea, that I and the kids' group I directed, took to it right away. We loved the idea of villages, families, and individuals expressing their need, planning for it, teaming up to make it a success, and realizing their vision with Outreach's help. I volunteer there, I've worked there for some years, and I believe in their approach to making the world a better place. Yay for a great organization!

Review for Outreach International, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was fortunate enough to work for Outreach for a few years, and was overwhelmed by how much good work so few employees accomplish around the world. It was amazing to watch their energy, dedication, and professional skill. During summer and winter terms, college students compete to intern at Outreach, to travel to places where they can learn about authentic participation, to teach the next generation about poverty that can be overcome, and to create new resources that appeal to all ages. Elderly volunteers are regular as clockwork, filling the back offices with laughter and long hours, preparing mailings and special products.

Since working at Outreach, I have used Outreach's children's program and catalog to teach large groups of kids from around the country about Outreach's message of making a difference by partnering with others to make sustainable change. Children are easily engaged in this message and purpose using Outreach's well-designed resources, Shop, and Catalog.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Wish I could double the number of staff and volunteers to extend their good work in the world.
