First time I was told to be at Communities for a Better environment from School-to-Career I didn't know what to expect at all. I was a summer youth intern from Oakland High School Environmental Science Academy, so my background knowledge of the environment helped me there. Together with Youth Uprising Youths we helped CBE build the foundation of evidence to show the Environmental Protection Agency that they are not doing their job in East Oakland. My opportunity there was awesome, staffs and volunteer were all nice and helpful. CBE's office is very laid-back and chill but when they need to get down to business they get serious. So my experience with CBE has been a very rewarding one because I've learned so many things that I could have not learned in school and probably anywhere else.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
first account because I've seen how CBE operates.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
MY ROLE:Volunteer & I helped collecting and inputting data on the East Oakland Truck Survey Project. Also learned many new organization skills with office items and envelope technician.
