Student and Volunteer Success Stories

I have been in the U.S.A and lived in Connecticut for nearly two years. I have experienced the changes of the different seasons and found shopping to be a paradise. Also, the teachers here are so loving, patient and responsible. But the thing that has impressed me most is the volunteers.

In the USA, there are many volunteers. They work in fire stations, libraries, community centers and many other places. Some retired people work in community centers teaching English as a second language. I am a beneficiary of their teaching and I enjoy and appreciate the classes from the bottom of my heart.

Because of the work done by volunteers, I think that society is a warmer, friendlier and better place. Their work helps the country become better educated and, thus, more prosperous and affluent as well.

I admire these volunteers. They are great!
