Alumni story
Dora Viramontes 2008 2010 Albuquerque

For me, being a VISTA volunteer was a wonderful experience. I spent time guiding parents, supporting teachers in different activities for children at Wilson Middle School in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I learned a lot from them. 

For the parents, I helped by filling out different papers since I spoke Spanish. About 60% of the population only spoke Spanish, so I had to help out a lot. I was always helping them resolve problems since the teachers didn’t speak much English, sometimes making phone calls for the parents.  I’m so proud for all that. Thank you.
