Since day one, I have felt like I made a difference in my community thanks to this organization. They sure know how to treat all people equally, and it was a pleasure to be here, I feel like I am in home every time I come, ready to help and make a change in any way possible. I have learned that we all need courage and dedication to succeed in life, this organization taught me that I need to be confident about myself, so I ca get up and help others to have the same life opportunities we all have. I simply want to say Thank You, and I hope I can come back someday!

It was a great experience working with the seniors. I helped them to learn how to use the computers and work online. They were happy and thankful because of the help. It was an amazing experience that helped me to get involved with them. I really appreciate the opportunity that this organization is giving me to work on what I want to study.

This organization helped me look our community in a more proactive way, due to all the
non profit activities they promote throughout the year and then
they make it happen. As an student, I never imagined interacting out of my inner circle, which is school and work, but this company enhanced my point of views and thoughts towards society. Activities that involved helping out elderly and community as a whole.

Community Improvement Organization is the best place, I did there my service learning hours for my SPS1017 class of Miami Dade College. This is one of the best volunteer organization that I have been. They really help the community, and they teach us as a student the importance of helping our community and also they teach us how service learning is important for our future career.
They are so comprehensive with your time and always help you to do your hours on time and get the best and the most from your service hours. I will recommend it to every one.

This organization helped me to realized about the importance of helping the community, and it shows me how good it feels. I learned the value of helping people without expecting to gain something from it. Also, I really appreciate the good attention I received in the time I was volunteering. This is my third time volunteering in the organization, and I am willing to do it again because I think that the time spent helping the community is really worthy.
