Review for Pratthanadee Foundation , Northboro, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Teaching ESL at The Goodwill Group Foundation has been the most rewarding volunteer experience of my life. The students, staff, and my fellow volunteers have been incredibly welcoming and appreciative, and I've made friendships with people from around the world that will last a lifetime. This is not a charity with a lot of administrative overhead; you can be assured that the time and money donated is used efficiently to help the truly needy.

A quick personal story: The second time I was scheduled to teach a class at Goodwill, I woke up in the morning feeling very weak and under the weather. Had it been a normal paid class I would definitely have called in sick and stayed on bed, but in this case I did not want to disappoint. By the end of the three hour class, I'd received so much positive energy back from the students that I felt completely refreshed and back to good health. In fact, I feel that all the effort I've given at Goodwill has been paid back to me tenfold by way of good feelings and priceless shared experiences.

If you volunteer at the Goodwill Group, I'm sure you'll find that two things will happen. Firstly, you will find new resources within yourself and be amazed at how much you are able to give. Secondly, you'll find that you will get more than you give.
