Review for FIVE MOUNTAINS HAWAII INC, Kamuela, HI, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

We serve on the drug free coalition and represent a Non-profit called "Roots Advocates for Youth" that works within the community to mentor kids and specifically raise funding and build a skatepark/youth center for youth in Hawaii. We present NHDFC with information and data concerning youth trends and encourage the involvement of FMH to support and fund youth specific facilities to empower children.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Unsure

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Okay

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Unlikely

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

Five mountains Hawaii could provide grant money to fund our project and others like it. Sending multiple coalitions long-distances and paying them for their fuel expenses is not efficient. They get together , eat food paid for by five mountains, and all receive printouts and documents which make their way to the trash. Salaries and reimbursements cost big money that could be used more effectively.

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

Yes, we have learned how apathetic the majority of coalitions really have become despite obvious intentions.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Determined to succeed in our own community and progress in the area of mentorship.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Volunteer & We build relationships within the community with our involvement in afterschool activities and have developed our own separate 501c-3 to build a youth rec-center in Hawaii! .
