Review for Creative Action Institute, Ipswich, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ArtCorps in incredible!
I just returned from 3 years working with them in Latin America. It has been one of the most transformative experiences of my life this far, and I am so grateful for the creativity and passion they bring to their work with underserved communities in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. I highly recommend learning more about them or signing up to work with them for a year. You may end up staying for 3 and falling in love with their mission and the work! Regardless, you would be sure to learn and grow so much and gain new perspectives about our world!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the new skills that I have developed during my time with them, the satisfaction of empowering women and other locals to find their voices through creativity and gaining new perspective about our world.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to help them grow and impact lives by continuing to send artists and find local artists to support their mission.

Role:  Volunteer & I lived and worked in El Salvador, training the staff of a local NGO and community leaders in creative facilitation techniques and art for social action!.
