Review for Vida Volunteer, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Volunteered multiple time with this organization and each time i step back from this experience more and more inspired, because sitting back and watching nothing being done was actually a lot more difficult than working my hardest to actually do something. Working alongside the amazing staff, doctors, and volunteers, i was reminded that to make a real difference, you don't have to be the smartest person with the highest degree, the only thing you need is to be the most passionate. With each trip my perspective of the world continued to change, and that's what many of us need I think, a change in perspective.

On top of all of this, this was an incredible learning experience, inside and outside of the clinic. I gained skills relevant to my future career, logged clinical hours, but most importantly learned how to listen. I learned that sometimes the best cure for ailments in these clinics are just the opportunity to be heard, and I think that is the most important part of this organization.
