Reviews for SEQUOIA FORESTKEEPER
I've decided to join the SFK after learning about the their Brilliant Curriculum and felt that I would like to give the children the tools to maximize their potential and become a better person for themselves and to Society, rather than give them temporary solutions.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The satisfaction you get from seeing the actual change in this kids' behavior and respect to others is tremendous. The School educators testified that the improvement shows in other fields as well. Also, the change it made in my life is a blessing!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would expand the program to all schools all over. These children are our future, by giving them the tools to overcome obstacles in life and be a better person, we set the infrastructure of better world and life to all.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Giving the opportunity to be part of this amazing organization.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Extremely caring and loving people that devote their time and money, and some their life, for the cause.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Implement the program in more schools and more kids could benefit from it.
Ways to make it better...
I would have more time to spend with the SFK activities. Unfortunately I'm working full time in two jobs.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
Recognition & awareness, Training SFK Teachers, and they need financial support from big Corporations as well as the Education Department.
One thing I'd also say is that...
In Palm Beach County, FL, for the last three years, a small group of highly motivated ladies organize a Fund Raising Luncheon at the Prestigious Boca Raton Hotel & Resort. Next Luncheon will take place on Tue 2/22/11 at the Boca Raton Resort.
