This organization provides volunteers with very worthwhile projects in neighborhoods and schools. Every time I volunteer they provide the training I need to do a good job. I've learned a lot about what it takes to make sure trees are planted correctly.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
well, probably every neighborhood and schools in San JosÃ©.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the professional way in which they run projects and making it fun at the same time.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
very knowledgeable and just genuinely good people.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
duplicate its great work all over the country.
