My relationship with Captain Planet Foundation began in October of 2011 when I was hired as the Grant and Education Administrative Intern. During my time at CPF I acquired invaluable experience learning about the grant screening process and the methods utilized by the Foundation in choosing grants to fund. Like many nonprofits, CPF was short staffed and had a limited budget. Yet what sets Captain Planet Foundation apart from other NGO's with similar restraints is their ability to reach thousands of children all over the world despite their monetary and administrative limitations. This always- and still does- amaze me and is a testemony to the effectiveness of both their grant screening process- which selects only those programs that will function indefinitely, and the dedication of its employees. It is only a matter of time before Captain Planet Foundation becomes one of the largest, most successful nonprofits in the world!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reviewing grants, selecting grants to be funded, working events during which the Foundation raised thousands of dollars to be awarded to environmental educational activities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire more staff to promote inter-office organization.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I learned how to determine which submitted grants warrented funding and made many friends while working at the Foundation- we still keep in touch!

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Empowered! I learned a new skill set, which helped build my resume.

This organization is full of great people trying to get the word out about helping the environment. Captain Planet is the only eco-friendly/eco-conscious super hero. By showing up at many events around the city of Atlanta and a few elsewhere, this foundation does a great job of being involved.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting involved with my community and others as well and spreading the word about Captain Planet.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

excellent. These are the nicest people that you can find.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save the world. And have more recycling programs implemented into the Atlanta area.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
