I have had a wonderful experience with CSV! I work with a small group of third graders over Zoom and they never fail to brighten my week. I hope to stay involved with this organization!

Wonderful people at CSV, everyone is incredibly nice and the students are great. Love working with them and I plan to continue doing so throughout my college career and hopefully beyond.
