What do our Volunteers enjoy about volunteering?
“In my work at TRAMS I see the newcomers to our country embracing the support offered and as a result, they blossom.
More importantly, I feel I gain from working with these families as well.”
“Getting to know the children and families and seeing the improvement in the children’s academic performance.
I really feel like I’m making a valuable contribution and love feeling part of the TRAMS community.”
“people can relax, laugh and be themselves because they know that they are safe and free from judgment.
Witnessing this is a great pleasure for me.””
“The hour I spend in-home tutoring really is the highlight of my week!”
“Firstly, the reward of knowing I’m welcomed by this family each week.
Knowing I’m making a contribution to these students’ education.
Working with other volunteers and getting to know them.”
“Sharing special moments with students. This goes beyond teaching and learning.
Sometimes we are there, just be human beings together and we get to share a very special and deep understanding of each other’s life.”
