Volunteering for Stella Nova has been a great learning process as it is my first experience on a board with a start-up non-profit. In addition to teaching the dancers, our executive directors have a lot of experience with non-profit dance companies so they have helped to guide the process. We are now filling our board and volunteer corps with enthusiastic and experienced members who have a passion for youth and dance. The group has been great to work with as we all have the common interest of providing a warm, supportive environment for our dancers and giving back to the community by sharing the art of dance throughout San Diego County. In addition to dancing, our dancers have had the opportunity to intern and learn the business side of the company. As a green company, we promote and educate our dancers, families, and audience about living "green". This has been a great experience for me personally to learn and to give back to youth and the community.

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

is working with people who have the same spirit of giving that I have.

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

provide dance to under-priveledged youth across the country and to bring the art of dance to more organizations espscially art deprived public schools.

I love Stella Nova, it has helped me greatly improve on my dancing and my preformance quality. Its also a safe place for me and the rest of the dance company to go to when you may not be having the best say. Also, When Stella Nova decided to go green we all made sure to put it in use in our daily lifes no just for props for the show.

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

every aspect from where they buy their clothes, and props, and who they decided to put in dispaly in the lobby during their show.

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

i dont think i would change anything because i know they already do everything they can to make it the best it canbe

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

I have enjpyed seeing the tranformation of the dancers, and the choregraphers, and just seeing all the hard work we all put into making the show the most beautiful thing it can be.

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

Very kinda and inspirtaional volunteers, and you know that they care for the dancers and the furture of the company and want it to prosper.

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

Help a lot more green orgainizations. And just like many other companys have helped us with advertsing and keeping this company alive, we would do the same because we know how important keeping our earth green right now can be.

Ways to make it better...

i dont think my experiance could be better, because we were always informed about everything and were always included in everything.

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

Getting enough profit to afford everything like the props, theatre, costumes, and make up.

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

I love Stella Nova, and it is defiantley something great in all the dancers lives, not just mine.
