Would you recommend Amicus - Volunteers of America - MN?

by Mary C. from St. Paul, MN (2016-11-14 07:51:35.0)
This is a very rewarding volunteer experience. I was matched with a woman in prison in Shakopee and visit her every month. We are getting to know each other and my role is only to be a friend and a positive connection to the outside. Prisoners sign up for the program and most don't have any other people who visit them. My friend is easy to talk to and I'm learning a lot about friendship and being there for someone as a result of our connection.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
