"Volunteering at Inner City Outreach has been an amazing and unforgettable experience for me. Whether it was working with students one-on-one or in small groups, I was able to get to know each and every one of them. It was such a great accomplishment to help students that were struggling with their homework. During my experience I was able to build strong bonds with the students and best of all, meet new people."

“Inner City Outreach (ICO) holds a very special place in my heart. It is an organization that truly stands by its values and beliefs in how it aims at transforming inner city communities. With a diverse, close-knit team that is committed to their work, ICO effectively reaches the communities it serves. It is grassroots, yet operates with the same world-class standards of any international NGO. My experience at ICO did not only shape my career path, but it also molded me into the person I am today.”

"The one year internship that I completed with Inner City Outreach (ICO) was one which was demanding and challenging, but very rewarding. I was able to develop myself by serving with ICO and in exchange for my own time and skills I developed new perspectives and learned new lessons. Working for a grass roots organization opens your eyes up to the resilience of a community and the dire importance of skilled - workers giving back. If you haven't already this is something that you need to experience."
