Volunteer Stories

Spotlight on Nancy Sweeney, one of MORE’s special volunteers

“My name is Nancy Sweeney and I am a volunteer at MORE School. I have been teaching ESL for over ten years at MORE and I have found it to be my most rewarding volunteer experience.

After my eleven children were raised I took a nine-month class introducing me to the many volunteer opportunities in the Twin Cities. I have always wanted to learn more about other cultures and meet people from other countries. Teaching ESL has fulfilled this desire.

The staff and students at MORE are exceptional. The desire to help these new refugees to learn English and a new way of life is inspiring. The rewards are unlimited.

Even though I just turned seventy-seven I hope to continue to be part of this ministry for many more years.”
