My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Silicon Valley Faces, San Jose, CA, USA
I decided to volunteer at Silicon Valley FACES because I attended one of their programs in 2003, Camp Everytown. The camp changed my life because it opened my eyes to my own potential as a leader. The work they do and the things they believe in are inspirational and encourage me to believe that positive change is possible. FACES helps young people and adults alike to confront issues of prejudice, domestic violence, and bigotry that still exist in our community. I've found FACES is a place where passionate people come together to create a better community for all, and I gladly volunteer my time.

I learned that it's important to take risks. I would have never imagined myself having the self confidence to help other people, but FACES gave me the opportunity to realize my strengths. I also made new friends who are now positive role models in my life.
