CIO is wonderful organization to volunteer in. I had a great time there. The people who work there are amazing, kind, and help a lot to students. They do an incredible work helping the community. Many families have being benefited by them. I highly recommend this organization in my school, not only because they are wonderful but the activities students do during the service learning help them to grow as person and see the necessity of others.

This is a great place where you get to help other people, and it makes you feel good about what you're doing, because you know you're doing it for a great cause. I had a great time helping the elderly and it's an experience that I would recommend for anyone.
