Review for Service for Peace Inc, Bridgeport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with Service For Peace in August 2005, was in the Global PeaceMakers Program in Dominican Republic. It was one of the most amazing, life-impacting experiences I had. I was able to have better understanding of a culture new to me, but also was able to see the important role, I had as a volunteer, in impacting the lives of the community members, but also the domestic volunteers that came from the community and surrounding communities. The relationships that were cultivated have been kept, and continues to amaze and inspire me the great dedication that all stakeholders have to foster positive change, progressive development, and leadership cultivation.

Review for Service for Peace Inc, Bridgeport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A great organization to work directly with communities in need. I have experience working with Communities of Peace in Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala. Most of the projects focus in primary education, however there are other opportunities in health, and environment. The international service programs are called Global Peacemaker, which bring together volunteers from the developed world and developing nations to serve a community in need. I learn much about culture but also the problems that developing communities face. I had a great experience in working together with others and creating long-term friendships across borders.
