    Hi, I am very concerned because I graduated as PSW last July and found nothing. I applied at several agencies. I live here a year ago and I don’t speak very fluent English. I graduated well University Degree Preschool Pedagogy in my country. I am willing to volunteer as well. Someone could advise me!
