Would you recommend Lakeside Community Development Corporation?

by Damian C. from Chicago, IL (Administrator for this Organization) (March 1, 2012)
I have been with the organization for almost two years now, but I gained so much it feels like I have been here for at least twice as much time. From the very beginning I was assigned to projects accordingly to my interest and career goals, and also kept under a thoughtful, engaging and professional supervision.

I've been a volunteer for Lakeside for nearly four years and find the agency and the cause a perfect match for my interests. The staff is thoroughly professional and has an excellent track record in utilizing the talents of a wide range of community volunteers.

I volunteered all last year for Lakeside, and am now on staff. The organization does great work for the community, and is a very accommodating volunteer employer. You can rest assured your work will be both effective and valued.
