Review for Dreams for Kids, Inc., Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dreams for Kids is an awesome place to work because not only are you gaining real world experience but you are also helping to create a great change. It is inspirational to see the hard work of all the staff come together for events and conferences. Also, the rewards for working for such a great company is far beyond gaining experience when you actually get to meet the children with whom we run programs with and really see how we are making a change.

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

When I got the chance to volunteer at the Illinois Center for Rehabilitation and Education (ICRE) I got to meet the teens and work with them one on one. It was a rewarding experience but it also allowed me to see how our work was put into play.

Ways to make it better...

I had known more interns. I came into the office throughout the summer and did not know any of the new interns that were hired. It was rather awkward sitting in a room full of people I didn't know especially when I had been working there longer than them.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Volunteer & I helped out any way I could in the office whether it was creating an inventory for donations or making calendars or flyers for events.
