Working with the Sierra Club started with a simple request for more information about the Building Bridges to the Outdoors Program. I work for a regional non-profit in southwestern New Mexico, and our mission is complimented by the Sierra Club's programming and funding opportunities. That simple email asking for a little backround info has lead to a fantastic partnership! It seems like The Sierra Club's southwest field office staff have the rare gift of making the most out of every opportunity - whether it is a community forum, a service day, a state-wide initiative or advocating for important legislation. The Sierra Club staff at the southwest field office have been intelligent, enthusiastic partners in our efforts to do youth conservation education.

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

Event planning, interactions with press, and as a proud grantee.

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

pay them more for the work they do.

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

the creativity and enthusiasm of the staff.

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

intelligent, passionate, creative and professional.

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

change the face of volunteerism and environmental stewardship/advocacy in the U.S.

Ways to make it better...

my work with my own organization had allowed me to focus more intently on this and other partnerships.

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

having a membership that is not as diverse as the general population, and that doesn't include enough youth.

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

This organization values partnerships and supports the efforts of various other non-profits. Cooperation is the future, and The Sierra Club is ahead of the curve in my opinion - at least in the southwest USA.
