Review for Friends of Trees, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered for Friends of Trees since 2006, first as a Crew Leader helping teams of other volunteers plant street trees in our neighborhoods, then as a Neighborhood Coordinator, planning my own neighborhood's annual tree planting. I keep coming back because the work feels so beneficial--to have more trees in our urban environment. But mostly I keep coming back because Friends of Trees makes volunteering so enjoyable--the staff sets a fun, upbeat, lively tone to every event. We get important work done AND we have fun doing it, which makes continuing the work easy.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It helped strengthen my confidence in being a leader and a teacher. It connected me with many people in my neighborhood who I wouldn't have met otherwise.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Grateful, happy, proud, playful, satisfied, committed

Role:  Volunteer & I led teams of volunteers in planting street trees. I organized my neighborhood's annual tree planting.
