My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The DREAM Project, Milton, VT, USA
I pivoted away from a corporate position in search of an altruistic experience that resulted in a fulfilling career in education. DREAM Project was the foundation of that transition. As a Dominican American, I sought to expand my network on the island beyond family ties, and DREAM Project facilitated this goal as well. During my time with the organization, experts who came from around the world to work with DREAM trained me in progressive teaching methodologies such as culturally responsive pedagogy and experiential learning. The professional development and personal growth gained while volunteering with the organization inspired me to return to the island to work with the team in a new capacity, support the organization's fundraising efforts in New York, and nurture life-long friendships I formed with my colleagues at the DREAM Project.
