I am so grateful to Skilled Volunteers for connecting me with ORAM International. Terry and Marla worked with me to find a placement that would be of interest, benefit from my skill set, and fit with my schedule and needs. The work at ORAM combines my editing skills and my social work background extremely well.
My mental health career focuses on the “micro”— working with individual clients. ORAM’s mission reminds me that, as a social worker, I am also trained to help on the macro level as well. Partnering with the kind, intelligent, and passionate staff at ORAM and Skilled Volunteers has made my time in Israel even more meaningful, and it was a privilege to contribute to the great work that ORAM does.
