I have always loved helping others whether it would involve academics, sports, or with other activities. Having a peer by my side would make helping others much more enjoyable for me. Also I would recommend this organization to other colleagues since helping others should always be on our radar.

I have volunteered for a number of local agencies, and was always welcomed and treated with respect. I would NEVER recommend this venue to volunteers. I have volunteered for many local agencies over the years, have skills and desire to give back and do good. However, my interest was approached in an extremely alienating and detached manner, lacking any interest in connection to me as a volunteer. In addition, the program required you to sign an inappropriate and crassly-worded and outdated legal form that implicitly refers to volunteers as children.
