Review for San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This review is for the CARE program within San Francisco General Hospital. The CARE program manages the Araceli Theater Project, which is a drama therapy program for cancer survivors. Through drama classes, survivors heal and learn to express their stories. They engage their imagination and voice, in a safe community setting. The plays are valuable to the community, because they bring forth issues and allow the audience to better understand what others are going through.

Review for World Savvy, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered at the World Affairs Challenge in 2008, put on by World Savvy. The event was extremely organized, from volunteer training to execution. I believe the students truly benefited from the event, and it opened my eyes to the inequities of our public school system. Despite having to be there at 8 AM on a Saturday, I had a great time and would love to volunteer again.
