My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Covenant House Michigan, Detroit, MI, USA
Working as a marketing intern, I had an amazing experience at Covenant House Michigan. I wrote articles to promote the organization, interviewed kids, helped organize events, and learned as much as I could about CHM. During my time, I noticed how passionate every staff member felt about his or her job, and how they all felt passionate about helping the kids. Many would take the time to develop personal connections with the kids, and to help counsel and mentor them. From my observation, the organization ran very well. The fundraising events were very successful, and everybody was constantly thinking of creative activities (talent shows, barbecues) to try and make things more fun for the kids. I also noticed how staff members were constantly brainstorming possible improvements to an already successful program - especially improvements with regard to staff unity, job assistance, education, etc.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
extremely passionate and caring, always willing to put in the extra time for their jobs, to either go to events for the kids or to spend time with the kids.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
go a lot further to providing the resources that these kids need, with regard to education, housing, and extra-curricular activities.
