Surfing The Nations (STN) is awesome! I first volunteered for one of their international humanitarian trips during the summer to Indonesia. I can confidently say that this nonprofit has changed countless numbers of individuals and family lives. The reason I know is because my life has been changed and matured by serving others as a volunteer through STN. Not only do they have traditional ways of helping communities but creative "out of the box" ways like the Annual Freedom Surf Contest which is a drug free awareness event. Stoked on STN.

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

My personal character development and my personal friends lives.

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

Figure out a way to help them market themselves better or fundraise for their community projects.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I would say, offer a scholarship for some of their volunteer programs so at-risk youth or young adults could experience what I was able to experience.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Showed me how to tangibly serve and love the surf/beach community. I also learned how to organize passionate young adults to use their gifts as a team.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Sooo good.

Surfing The Nations is one of the best organizations I have ever been involved with. Their open door, open arms approach to reaching out to the community has taught me how to see the needs of those around me and immediatly and practically meet those needs. I have never seen a community transform as quickly as Wahiawa and feel that it is an honour and a joy to be a part of this transformation.

My experience with Surfing The Nations has been nothing short of life changing. Their dedication to people is astounding and their programs are focused on growing people of character, hope, and integrity. I would recommend any kind of involvement with this organization, from full-time volunteer to one-time experience.
