Review for CENTER FOR ETHICAL LEADERSHIP, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered in a few different capacities over the years, and have found CEL to be one of the nicest and most thoughtful groups you will ever meet. The work CEL does is innovative and important, and the group has evolved over the years to ensure its impact creates lasting change for the communities it reaches. You won't find many groups that put as much concerted thought and planning into their work. It's been a few years since my last time volunteering, and to this day the people I've met there have kept in touch.

Review for Earth Economics, Tacoma, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Earth Economics does important work in quantifying and explaining the economic impacts of the world's natural resources. I've had a front row to the research and writing going on with the group as a volunteer technical editor. Interesting topics and nice people.

Review for Conservation Volunteers International Program, Inc., Orinda, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first impressions of Conservation Volunteers International Program were that the all-volunteer staff had a fantastic wealth of conservation, forest service and business experience. I began volunteering about a year ago, and have been completely impressed by what this small team gets done. From projects in Machu Picchu, to a bridge in Patagonia, the team provides the framework for volunteers to visit amazing places and actually make them better. I've cut down my time with a few other groups to focus on this one, and in the process I have joined the board. I believe in this group, and you won't find many small organizations that are this well organized with a sustainable business model for positive change.
