Review for Humane Society Silicon Valley, Milpitas, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started off at the Humane Society to fulfill requirements for school, but almost immediately I fell in love with volunteering at it. It's been a wonderful experience being able to work with animals and help the students in the CIA program learn what the program has to offer! I can't wait until my next opportunity to volunteer here.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my social skills. I believe that it helped me get used speaking and working with people that I don't necessarily know well.

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?

2012

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

This experience made me feel like I was making a difference in the community because we actually taught the community the lessons we had learned.

Role:  Volunteer & I was a student in the CIA program, where I learned proper animal socialization with the shelter animals, as well as a mentor where I helped the students in a later session learn the same things.
