Jennifer Woolley, Warwick High School
"If someone I knew told me he/she was thinking about joining Outreach360 and wanted my opinion, I would tell him/her it was a great idea. I love the Outreach360 principles, and I like what the organization stands for. My favorite principles were Poco a Poco, and Jump Right In. I liked the way the staff encouraged us to be creative with our lesson plans, and I also liked the little debriefs we had at the end of the morning and at the end of the afternoon, since they were meant to reflect on the day. Finally, I would tell them that it was a great learning experience for me, and that if I had the chance, I would definitely do it again. "
"One of the best things that I experienced with Outreach360 is how well of a job is done helping and sponsoring the kids. The staff continues to encourage the volunteers to do the best we can do and to never give up. The Outreach360 principles really stood out to me and helped me through the week. "
""jump right in" and do it! The experience is worth having. Everything was well organized, the staff is passionate about their work and very supportive of the volunteers. It was nice to have the orientation, teaching, and free time as well as meals, transportation, and cultural activities all taken care of. I felt that we also learned so much about the Dominican Republic and Outreach360 while we were there! I've not been home a week and miss it so much and hope to return some day! "
"This is an experience of a life-time and the children will steal your heart. You are led by inspiring individuals, but you should also be prepared to work hard. You will receive immense satisfaction from your service and also learn so much from your experience."
Kathleen Ho Sang, Villanova University
