I believe this organization is a great way to volunteer and give back to the community! Everyone should be involved, especially since the hours of service are flexible. I am looking forward to being apart of this wonderful experience!

Mission Graduates is a great environment to volunteer. The employees are energetic and truly care about the work they do. The organization is well respected in the community and they have an open door policy to the students they work with. For example today one of the local high school students is in the office getting help with his college application. The programs are well organized and carefully thought out which makes volunteering here easy and enjoyable.
