Review for MOSAIC OUTDOOR CLUBS OF AMERICA INC, Hollywood, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 1991, I noticed an article about an outdoor Jewish group in the local Jewish newspaper. At that time, I was recently single after 33 years of marriage, two children, two grandchildren and no one I knew was interested in outdoor activities. For the past 18 years, I have spent many, many Sundays and weekends meeting Jewish people who have enriched my life, become my friends, and my support. The present leadership of MOCA is extremely talented and has the ability to lead the organization forward with new ideas. Bringing younger people with fresh enthusiasm is just one goal. Increasing leadership knowledge and skill is critical to our future. The past leadership retreats which brought professional people together with our leaders went a long way toward both goals. I participated in both the FL Everglade training and the Rocky Mountain National Park training events. Both times I left with a a huge amount of insight, many new friends who remain a part of my life and brought great energy home to my local group. As an elder of the organization both in age and experience, I serve on the local board and in a leadership role for activities. My life is richer due to my involvement with both MOCA and MOSAICGA.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people. I have met many people who fill my life with companionship as well as serving as my teachers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

full of insight and skill. Quality leadership is a valuable part of who we are and what we support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bring Jewish people together to safely and respectfully enjoy and protect the outdoors while building meaningful, lifelong friendships.

Ways to make it better...

only I had discovered the organization 50 years ago.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

bringing in younger people and supporting our leadership with training and education.

One thing I'd also say is that...

My life is fuller because of my involvement with Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America and Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of Georgia.
