I used to work as a volunteer and I truly appreciate the work they do. I think that the aim they are fully focused on is amazing.. Child proofing is the first step, but as a parent we need to know more for our kids safety..As a mom to be former volunteer, I have learned a lot. Every parent and grandparent has to follow their hard work..

As a former intern and current volunteer, I truly enjoyed working with Nancy Cowles and the team in order to create safer regulations for children's products. Being a part of this non-profit has helped me become more self-sufficient as well as a team-player. I have learned what it takes to complete projects in a timely, yet successful fashion. I do recommend any student who needs an internship or volunteer placement to give this organization a call!
