In my experience, this organization is fantastic. I'm most impressed with the staff that I've had the pleasure working with. They are dedicated, intelligent, and stick to the core values of the organization. They do an incredable job of bringing technical and finicial support into my school, and classroom. They are always avaialbe, and give creative and meaningful feedback on how to best improve my project.

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

The implementation of our after school Green Club. Specifially the reduction of waste produced by our school, the construction and maintainece of a school garden, and the current production of a school food documentary. Additially we are currently in the process of installing solar panals on the roof of the school.

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

probably not change too much.

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

Their flexsiblity and commitment towards my students and school.

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

Motivated, intelligent, experienced, and trustworthy.

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

Secure throusands of green jobs for high school graduates.

Ways to make it better...

We had more regular contact.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The parents and teachers that work with the students they are working with. The projects they support can only do so much, the next step is up to those deeply involved in students lives to promote a sustainable way of living.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have learned a great deal from working with this organization. I hope they continue to support urban school in giving students the opportunity to improve their communities.

This nonprofit is very helpful. They have supported our efforts with enthusiasm. The support they provided us lead to our school receiving the certified energy audit we have sought for three years. They were able to motivate the shakers and doers in our state capital to provide this service to us, a fellow nonprofit.

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

many ways. They are the best!

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

be very proud.

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

the encouragement, motivation, and support to continue our efforts.

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

The support staff I have worked with is the BEST! They were very knowledgeable, supportive and always willing to help.

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

provide financing for solar panels for every private school which will not be covered by government loans or programs to install solar providing every school in this country the opportunity to provide GREEN energy and save over $5,00 annually.

Ways to make it better...

we were selected as a demonstration site for all rural communities in this country.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Maintaining staff levels which can provide the quality service and outreach.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This organization has not demonstrated a negative attitude towards my private, nonprofit school. I really appreciate the fact that this organization looks for youth driven projects regardless of school affiliation. We are a very small rural school which operates on a tuition based funding system of under $4,000 a year.
