Would you recommend BCCC Refugee Youth Project?

Every Tuesday for most of the Spring Semester I spent 2 hours at RYP for an education class. This program is the most fun I have had with young children. The kids there tell me how much they enjoy it and how much more confident they feel being able to be with students who are like them. The people in charge are always on top of things and obviously care about the students. The students are well behaved, and have such a large want to learn, that helping them is easy. If it fits in my schedule, I wouldn't pass up a chance to work with RYP again.
