Assisting TBTN Foundation on developing Health & Wellness curriculum for youth/college students has been a great experience! The team leads on the project are very organized and supportive. They engaged me as I worked on my portion, but didn’t hassle me. I thoroughly enjoy working with them. It is nice to be able to able to help them with their mission.

Working with Katie and her amazing team has been the most rewarding and fulfilling volunteering experience. What differentiates this organization from others that I've volunteered with is how organized and thoughtful the whole experience is. Katie & her team take time to meet with volunteers on a weekly basis to guide and brainstorm on topics/ideas. There's a very helpful Slack channel that encourages interaction between volunteers and Katie's team. I love the interactive engagement of this virtual experience and have gained so much knowledge from writing curricula and researching resources for a variety of hot button topics so relevant to our youth. A big shout out to Jessica, Nicole, and Annie who are always eager to help as our project managers. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to volunteer at TBTN and would definitely recommend it to others.

I honestly had no idea what expect with a virtual volunteer opportunity, but this has been great! The project instructions are well-laid out, and the staff is quick to respond to any questions. There are numerous opportunities available to people with varying time commitments and interests. I would definitely recommend this opportunity to others.

It was a great experience volunteering with the TBTN Foundation on creating wellness cirricula for high school and university students. A big shout-out to my project manager Lily for being so understanding! I would love to continue volunteering with them in the future.

Katie and her Team are given me the opportunity to practically exercise my acquired Salesforce and Business skills. I am grateful to be able to help "Take Back The Night" during this transition. And this might be a long therm engagement, if need be!
