    Don’t Take our Word for It...Here's What Our Volunteers Are Saying


    Every year about 200 volunteers help ER and our partner organizations by serving throughout the world. Here are a few testimonials from those who have served.

    My time as a short-term volunteer in South Africa with Extreme Response was life changing. I was able to be immersed in serving others in a very unique way, build relationships with amazing people and experience tremendous personal growth.

    Serving with Extreme Response was a great experience. Helping the kids at the Dream Centre, I was able to learn so much about the children, the culture and myself. It was awesome to be part of such an important movement!
