My daughter and I volunteered for the school year. We both found it to be extremely rewarding and easy to help out. The kids were fantastic. The organization and communication was well managed. They really do a great job at VU.
Vecinos unidos is a great organization with an amazing goal and all around awesome volunteers. I really enjoyed my time here working with all the wonderful hardworking kids. I honestly wish I could continue being a part of VU!!
