I have had very positive experiences with this organization. Coming from Germany, where solar is very common because of the financial incentive, I was surprised to find so much enthusiasm for renewable energy because of environment reasons here in the U.S. The leadership at SolTrekker really is at the front of that enthusiasm and passion. While building the bus from a old RV shell, they were very committed to research and installing the most sustainable building materials available, not just to the idea of being green, but to put it into practice. I feel sure that the free education they do at schools without much money is helping to make the students more educated about conservation and efficiency and inspiring them to make actions that will provide solutions to climate change and environment destruction.

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

Seeing them educate many people about how to create a more sustainable system by using conservation, efficiency and renewable energy.

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

They have a very hopeful message that put attention on the solutions to environment problems.

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

Very giving and very open to listen

SolTrekker is an admirable non-profit in that it founds its mission in awareness and education. With the aim of making renewable sources of energy more accessible to individuals of all social classes, the organization strives to educate those in need. Ty has gone to great lengths to promote sustainability by incorporating visual examples (such as the sustainable bus and its individual functions) for students and adults. Also, the goals remain particularly precise, in that the local community remains the highest priority.

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

working with Ty Adams. He's an incredibly sophisticated outside-the-box thinker and remains humble despite his leadership position.
