I'm impressed by the light-hearted spirit, dedication to alternative energy education, and friendly, talented staff at Global Inheritance. While the organization is based in LA, its programs and initiatives extend nationwide. As a volunteer, I helped at G.I.'s tent at two music festivals in DC and San Francisco, working directly with staff members to set up equipment and to speak with concert-goers about G.I.'s work. It was a great opportunity to spread the word, interact with people face-to-face, and learn more about renewable energy. Beyond all of their critical work, it's clear that G.I. values its volunteers and tries to make the experience valuable and fun. I definitely plan on volunteering again!
