Before working with SCSJ, I did not have a lot of faith in nonprofits as agents of social change. But a friend asked me to do a graphic design project for the group, and I became impressed with their commitment to community-driven change. This group does not simply come in to a distressed neighborhood and tell them "this is how your fix your problems." Instead, they listen, ask questions, give a variety of options, and ultimately take whatever action the client community thinks is best. By leaving the power in the hands of the clients, SCSJ is a group truly working FOR their clients, not for their own agenda. Needless to say, after a single volunteer experience I have come back again and again to help this group.
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?
