Would you recommend Taproot Foundation?

Too many volunteers for too few opportunities. You have to waste an afternoon/evening commuting to a required "orientation," fill out a stack of paperwork, and then after that, nothing.

I have professional skills as an editor and writer 20 plus that I'd like to use for a good cause. I'm interested in copy eiting or writing white papers, grants or reports.

While I had great experiences with the Chicago Taproot office, I have to say the Washington office was a different story! They don't care about the volunteers or their opinions. All that matters is getting projects completed, whether the clients get crap or not.

I've worked with Taproot on 3 projects, in different roles, and each experience has been terrific. Projects are well-scoped and structured, there is solid support, and a network of smart, interesting, fun volunteers. I have and will continue to recommend Taproot to my colleagues and friends who are looking for new ways to apply their skills to a cause that matters.

Taproot, does a poor job of working with thier volunteers. If an organization is able to have the symptoms of bi-polar, Taproot has it. I think they have a great mission and vision it is just poorly executed at least in the Washington DC office. There is a reason they have problems finding web-designers as thier reputation proceeds them.
