Truly a great nonprofit! This organization is incredibly integrated into the Prince WIlliam/Manassas area and dedicated to helping residents recognize the personal stake they have in the health of our community by forging lasting relationships with individuals, schools, and businesses. With 7 programs, there's a volunteer opportunity for just about everyone, from young children to retirees. I volunteered with KPWB for just under 5 months after choosing to extend my 3 month internship (because I loved it so much!) and I've gained more than I could have ever imagined. I really feel like, by working with KPWB, I'm making the positive impact on the community that most idealistic, recent college grads like myself dream of making and I'm so grateful to have that chance!
I was really down on my luck a few years ago and KPWB basically saved me from myself. Not only was I able to reach out to the community, through interning with KPWB, but I was also able to reinforce the education I had received years and years ago. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity and hope that this accomplished organization truly finds the passionate, dedicated volunteers and interns that it deserves.
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship at Keep Prince William Beautiful. I found my time to be very productive and a great learning experience. My responsibilities varied day by day, which included organizing community cleanups to attending seminars to educate the community about various topics (such as litter prevention and recycling). The staff at KPWB were wonderful to work with and I look forward to staying in touch with them, as I learned a lot of valuable insight from them.
