Review for Oregon Environmental Council, Inc., Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having recently completed an internship with Oregon Environmental Council, I not only enjoyed the creative ambience of OEC's working group of dedicated and vibrant professionals, but was made to feel right at home and was always considered as an important contributor to the team effort. The team effort here is no small item: OEC is at the forefront of coalition building for positive environmental change across the entire state of Oregon. Their efforts may not be of the flashy type so often hyped by some members of the environmental community, but they are real; backed by good science and built to last. I call this good work and I applaud OEC for tackling tough issues and designing programs that really work. Thanks guys!!

Review for On-The-Move Community Integration, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

On-The-Move provides absolutely unique, ground-breaking opportunities for adults disabilities. Their recipe is actually quite simple: get folks out in the community where they can volunteer and have fun! By volunteering in environmentally conscious and socially just activities, On-The-Move participants gain social skills and a source of real pride at making a worthwhile contribution to their community. But just as important, if not more so, the community comes to know and really appreciate a group of joyful souls that they may have overlooked. Diversity increases with every smile. Every time I visit On-The-Move, I think to myself, "Shouldn' t I be having this much fun?" Wow.
