Reviews for Senecorps Inc
I had the same experience as the other person who wrote a review before me... Except, I travelled all the way to Senegal to find out that the organization was not what it appeared to be.
I travel every year to a foreign country to volunteer. I know that when it all boils down to it, I'm not changing people, people are changing me. I have to say, Senecorps changed me, but not for the positive. was the worst experience I had volunteering and I have no qualms about sharing my experience so that others can be more aware about fraudulent companies like them. I left Senegal feeling betrayed and used.

Unfortunately, I was not pleased with Senecorps. It took me a while after I started sending the company e-mails for more information, but I eventually got into contact with a representative, who convinced me that I would be placed without any problem. The representative continued to answer my occasional questions until I was finished with my application and had submitted a deposit. Then, Senecorps simply dropped out of contact with me. Despite once getting a promise for a refund (after numerous e-mails and phone calls), Senecorps has not followed up. Nor have they responded to my follow-up e-mails and phone calls. I was originally very excited to volunteer with Senecorps, and I remain disappointed that I never received the opportunity.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my bank account.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make an attempt to answer e-mails or phone calls. If this were not possible because of my busy schedule, I would delegate these tasks.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
complaining to family and friends.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
buy a phone system that worked.
Ways to make it better...
Senecorps had been a little more organized.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
the shortage of staff or perhaps the shortage of funding. In all fairness, I acknowledge that it is difficult to take care of every volunteer.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I would love for Senecorps to contact me. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
