"I met a girl who was having trouble skating, and I wasn't sure how to help her, then she held onto my arm, so she could stay up, and she only wanted me to help her! I realized that I was really helping her skate!! I learned that even though people are different, we all have stories to share, and many different ways of expressing them!!!" - Talia G., Belmont S.P.O.R.T. Ice Skating Volunteer

"I met new people and had a great time working with new people and learning their perspective on things. I felt good knowing I helped people feel good and learn about basketball. I learned many things which helped me learn about the society I live in.

"I enjoyed many things about this ma'asim tovim experience. But if I were to pick one thing that I enjoyed about the Belmont skating it would be seeing the athletes get better and improve week to week.

"I enjoyed how i was making a difference or just seeing the faces on the people who I was teaching. There was some people at the end of the day that they hugged me or said 'cant wait to see you next time'. I thought that was really heart warming and changed my prospective of how little you think you do can change a lot in someone else's heart." -Skylar C., Belmont S.P.O.R.T. Dance Volunteer
"An experience that I had during Ma'asim Tovim that was meaningful to me was that I was able to talk with a younger girl who seemed like she was really enjoying skating with my friend and I. When we passed the little girl's mother, she pointed to us and said 'look my friends!' This was really meaningful to me!" -Talia G., Belmont S.P.O.R.T. Ice Skating Volunteer

"One night at Special Olympics Track, I was about to do the 100 meter dash with a couple of the athletes. When we started, I thought I would have to slow down to keep pace with the other athletes, but when the gun went off, the athlete next to me bolted forward, extremely quickly. I had to run as fast as I could to keep up. I learned from this experience that anyone can be an athlete and that good athletes come in all shapes and sizes." - Mitchell H., Belmont S.P.O.R.T. Basketball and Track Volunteer
"The Ma'asim Tovim project benefited me in many ways. Before I started the project, I had a perspective of special needs children. This perspective was not always positive. From doing this project it has helped me learn that everyone is equal. When I first started skating, I skated with a little boy named Anthony. I did not know that he had special needs because he looked the same as you and me. I have grown a special bond with Anthony that I will keep forever. This has truly been an amazing experience that I will never forget." --Tyler J., Belmont S.P.O.R.T. Ice Skating Volunteer
"I worked with a girls that the first day was really shy and did not know how to skate at all. By the next time she was skating really well and was talking to me. By now she doesn't need any help just a friend to talk to her." --Mira, Belmont S.P.O.R.T. Ice Skating Volunteer
