"I've never met a group of kids who were so easy to love, who welcomed you into their lives, and hugged you so frequently. I came to show them love, but I think they showed me more."
"Above all I enjoyed spending time with the children. Also, teaching English at the local school was very rewarding. It was amazing to see how eager the children were to learn. Since I knew very little Spanish, I was concerned that I may not be able to help much but that was not the case."
"Anyone who volunteers with Outreach360 will come back with a much more open mind about the world."
"Outreach360 provides volunteers with an amazing opportunity to share a small part of their lives with a group of very special children. Whether playing outside or teaching English, each smile and interaction led to a renewed perspective on life and the meaning of family. After a week of memories, I feel that I've carried away a small part of each child with me, and that each one has taught me just a bit more about myself and the world around me. What I took away from this experience far exceeded what I put in."
"I went on my first Outreach360 trip five years ago and it's amazing to see how much the organization has grown. However, the message remains clear: communication love--an accomplishment to be proud of."
"The love and hope in Monte Cristi is something everyone should experience. I feel like I received so much more than I gave. I am already planning my next trip and hope to return many times in the years to come."
"My experience was a life changing one. The children at Hope of a Child taught me more than I could have possibly taught them!"
"It's a great program and a great opportunity."
