I've been involved with API as a volunteer for six years and find API to be unlike any other organization, nonprofit or business, I've ever encountered. The way it serves families empowers parents to do what's best for their families, giving the power back to parents to trust their intuition but also reinforcing this approach through solid research--there is no other organization that has the potential to impact children and their parents, communities, and indeed societies the way that API does. It not only offers mostly free or otherwise very low-cost support and education through publications, websites, teleseminars, discussion forums, and other online resources but also thru local accredited contacts and parent support groups -- so there's a face in your community as well as the plethora of online content available to you. Also, as far as a volunteer-run organization, API "walks like it talks," in that its approach to organization management mirrors the AP mindset. API's volunteers are treated like family--we're all in this together. The volunteers who gather together over the phone and through the Internet, because this is a virtual organization and we're all parents dedicated to the cause but who still need to make parenting our priority, truly believe in AP and its ability to change lives.
