UPWARDLY GLOBAL
October 28, 2013

When I discovered Upwardly Global online, I was impressed enough to drive 2-hours from the city where I live to attend one of their volunteer training sessions in San Francisco. I've been a volunteer for almost 2-years now. Upwardly Global has many strengths as an organization that I appreciate as a nonprofit leader and as a professional:

1) Their clear mission--to assist new immigrants in their pursuit of US employment through support, mentoring, and coaching--is a laudable goal that promotes human dignity and well-being. Upwardly Global makes the "American Dream" not only accessible, but achievable for new Americans.
2) Their committed staff--the people whom I've encountered at Upwardly Global have been uniformly impressive. Their team shows a refreshing blend of practical idealism--able to inspire their various constituents--donors, volunteers, and mentees, while at the same time encouraging job-seekers to work hard to achieve their goals.
