Review for All Hands and Hearts, Mattapoisett, MA, USA
I volunteered for 10 weeks, I would have done more but I am not American. My experience was one week of gutting out a house and the remaining nine weeks as base manager. Meeting the residents of the house was great and it enabled me to understand more of their circumstances and how much they needed our help. It was an honour to help them. Working with the All Hands and Hearts staff and volunteers was very special, we were all there to help those in need and this was getting acheived. My base manager role involved me ensuring our accommodation was well maintained and stocked accordingly, as well undertaking the catering and food shopping. This was a challenge but I enjoyed this as I got to use my organisation skills. Whatever one does in volunteering you are helping, as well as learning skills and how to live in a communal setting. A great experience.
