WHAT VOLUNTEERS ARE SAYING
It has brought me so much joy, excitement and confidence thar I never knew I had. People always say to me, ‘You volunteer all day on Saturdays, or you took a week off to volunteer?’. I can’t even begin to explain to them how great of an organization I am part of. I feel blessed to have stumbled upon your advertisement.
I had a truly amazing experience helping out at Dubasov the past couple months, I’ve learned so much and have had such an enjoyable time. Everyone has made such a positive impact on my life, and I’m so thankful I got to share the time with some lovely individuals.
Thank you so much for this opportunity. I’m so glad that I took part in such an experience, and got to meet some really sweet children. It really puts your life in perspective, how lucky some of us may be, but these kids that I hung out last night, really touched me. I had a very interesting friend in elelmentary school who had Down Syndrome, which made life in school very difficult for him. But one day, I reached out to him, and we were friends for a long while. Sadly, he passed away, and it really hit me hard. The children that I hung out with last night reminded me of those days with my friend. This experience has filled me with a sense of fulfillment. So, I am fully on board, and I will dedicate as much time as I possibly can. If you need me for any session, I’m there. So in conclusion, I am grateful for this opportunity, and I will continue to brighten up a child’s day for as long as my time with Dubasov Dance and Wellness is. Once again, thank you :)
I started volunteering after watching my niece in the program and how she lights up when she arrives at the studio. I look forward to my Saturday mornings and know the will be filled with smiless and fun. The parents and Miss Telisa are often thanking the volunteers but I feel like I should be thanking them for allowing me the opportunity to work with these wonderful children who are definitely changing my life for the better. The studio creates a great opportunity for the families as well as the volunteers. I truly feel like I’m part of something special.
