I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing high school students make noticeable changes to their perspectives in a matter of 5 days. For example, I spent last week as a counselor at an ANYTOWN session (July 8-12), and I had one student come up and tell me that he used to believe that being gay was a choice, but after a workshop we did on homosexuality called "Coming Out Star", he no longer felt that way.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Yes, not only have I met some AMAZING people who make me feel great about myself on a daily basis, even when I'm feeling down, I also am able to re-learn the lessons at every ANYTOWN session that I attend. No matter how many times I experience each workshop, something new always comes up and I hear a new perspective, idea, or quote that empowers and inspires me to take action
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
The people who work with CTB and ANYTOWN are the most supportive group of people I've ever met. Any time I feel like I've made a mistake or I feel like I'm not making a difference, someone is immediately there for me to have a shoulder to cry on and to tell me that I AM making a difference and that I AM doing well. Regardless of how long I've known them, everyone is there for me whenever I need someone to lift up my spirits.
