"Working at Chicos and Kids had been an experience like no other."

"Being in a leadership position as a counselor/teacher at Chicos and Kids in Colombia gave me a sense of purpose. It made me feel older and wiser; as someone who the kids looked up to. Sometimes, though, I looked up to them. The kids that we worked with had an amazing, positive attitude that many kids fail to appreciate. They were so grateful for everything we did for them. They are so incredibly loving, playful, and kind; they treated us like family from the minute we walked in." - Ana Lucia Chalmers, Volunteer and Ambassador
