“Working with mentally challenged adults in Auckland was the best decision. I am so pleased I chose this option as it exceeded everything I expected. The staff made it really special and knew how to put my skills to work for their community. I liked the fact that I could mentor and hang out with a small number of residents. That allowed me to get to know some of them really well and to learn how to help them as best I could. My first day I was a bit overwhelmed as some of the community faces some severe challenges. But each day I learned that everyone just get’s on with life the best they can and we all do our part as a community to help. I was amazed on my last day there that the staff actually baked me a cake and threw a party for me. I will always treasure that memory.”
