Experiences

I felt comfortable and welcome from the first day I began working with TURN. I love laughing, talking, and hanging out with the individuals at the TURN homes. There is a goodness that radiates from their faces and you can't help but feel happy while you are with them.

I had never really done anything like TURN before I became a volunteer. When we held our first event, I was a little nervous! It turned out to be the most amazing experience. These people are such a joy to work with. It's so wonderful to know you are helping them have a good experience, but even more meaningful what they do for me. They are truly kind and happy and those feelings are contagious when you are around the members of TURN. I can't wait to have more events with BYU and TURN so more can have the same experience!
