Review for PROYECTO ITZAES, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Proyecto Itzaes (PI) is an incredible organization run by a small group of extremely dedicated individuals. Over the past six years, I have been able to observe the work of PI from many different angles -- from seeing and participating in their efforts firsthand in Yucatan, Mexico, to witnessing the hard work, planning, and fundraising that goes into making it all happen. I have met many individuals that PI has served and can see that PI has played a very positive role in each of their lives. With the endless effort of PI staff and volunteers and some additional support, this organization will continue to grow and serve members of the community in Yucatan who really benefit from it. I highly recommend Proyecto Itzaes to anyone who is able to support, volunteer, or be served by this wonderful organization.

Review for PENINSULA COLLEGE FUND , Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From my experience, the Peninsula College Fund is an exceptional organization for its mentors and students alike. I initially got involved with PCF at the beginning of 2012 as an application reader and interviewer for the scholarship program. After being incredibly inspired by the students being considered for awards, I applied to be a mentor for the program. Serving as a mentor to such a bright and dedicated college freshman has already been a great joy as well as a valuable learning experience. I am really looking forward to the next four years of working with PCF and being motivated by all that this non-profit does.
