Would you recommend Refugee Services of Texas - Amarillo?

by Leigh W. from Amarillo, TX (2014-11-17 07:26:21.0)
Refugee Services of Texas has many opportunities for people to get involved with the refugee community. I personally volunteer with the Youth Mentor Program. I spend about 2 hours a week with two refugee children. We work on homework, go to the library, talk about our different cultures, explore Amarillo, and many other activities. I have helped my mentees adjust to living in Amarillo and understanding our culture, but I think that I have benefited more by getting to know their stories and hear what they have been through. Their family's sacrifice and determination is inspiring.
