This is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever had. My fellow volunteers at StandUp for Kids in Worcester are incredibly thoughtful, passionate, and kind. When we can connect with the youth, you can see and feel their appreciation for your efforts; this is by far one of the most uplifting organizations I have ever worked with!
