Up Rising Stars Inc. is such a wonderful organization to work for! They're so family oriented and they allowed me to be very hands-on this year to help plan for their gala. I truly enjoyed my time there because I got the chance to work on some great media skills that will help me in college as well as in my career. I was even offered an externship position at the end of the summer, and I now have the opportunity to continue working with the organization while at school. Up Rising Stars Inc. is truly a great organization to volunteer for, I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get involved!
Volunteering with Up Rising Stars Inc. provided me with an excellent opportunity to be helpful and to meet new people. This family-run organization gave me that and more. I’ve met some wonderful people and also work with some positive young people. The real work that allows Up Rising Stars Inc. to provide and -with style- present scholarships to high school students going to college was an exciting experience. It is rewarding to realize the results of your effort pay off when you get to see the faces of the scholarship recipients. After completing a year of volunteer service, I depart feeling like I left behind a good friend. Nevertheless, you will learn and find value in the work you do while volunteering with Up Rising Stars Inc.
Up Rising Stars Inc. is a great place to learn hands on media related activities. There are also opportunities for growth and you work closely with its founder and great peers. During my short time with them, I've taken away with me a great amount of learning experiences in work-related and real-world advice. I would recommend anyone who wants to learn about the media, want flexible hours, wants to be part of a great cause & who wants to be surrounded by positive energy to apply to Up Rising Stars Inc.
My time with Up Rising Stars Inc. was a great experience! I was able to work side by side with the founder and be hands on with helping with the organization's cause. I learned so much, helped support a great cause, and had a blast! I thoroughly recommend this organization for volunteering because of the youth your efforts will benefit and the knowledge you can gain from the amazing mentorship.
