Review for The Center for Leadership Initiatives, Vancouver, --, Canada

Rating: 5 stars  

I was lucky enough to participate in the ROI summit this past summer in Tel Aviv. The program was fantastic, the workshops were informative, and I walked away from the short experience with a wealth of knowledge that is continuing to benefit my organization, and the participants we serve! In addition, through the ROI community, this learning experience continues to grow. I'm still exchanging ideas, contacts and information with the friends and contacts I made during the program. The Jewish community needs more organizations like the CLI to enhance the quality and quantity of professional development opportunities for our communal professionals. Thanks CLI for running a great program!

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

the knowledge I was able to gain through their work, and the contacts I've made since attending.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, innovative, and some of the brightest minds in the Jewish non-profit world.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make an amazing impact on Jewish communal workers across the world

Ways to make it better...

I could have attended all of their workshops, and not had to choose between multiple ones.

Review for JCorps International : Jewish Volunteering, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I met Ari at the ROI summit this summer and Israel, and am so impressed with what JCorps is doing! What a great way to get young adults to build community through volunteering. It is a fantastic idea and a win win for everyone involved. JCorp should be instituted in more cities, and is an excellent model for young Jewish adults to help Tikun Olam.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Excellent, driven, and not willing to take no for an answer.
