THE CORAL REEF ALLIANCE
April 24, 2010

I found this international nonprofit after seeing all the wonderful work that had been done to preserve coral reefs in Hawaii and wanting to take a greater part in supporting initiatives of this sort. The Coral Reef Alliance team were very helpful in involving me in their organization and educating me about their environmental work. The Coral Reef Alliance works with local communities, managers of marine protected areas, and marine recreation tourism operators. They provide several useful educational workshops internationally and collaborate with organizations similar to their own to help spread the latest knowledge on management and best practices on coral reef preservation. Their strong international presence is often targeted towards small communities, areas where resources are most needed. They work in countries such as Indonesia, Papa New Guinea, and Honduras. The Coral Reef Alliance fulfills a much-needed niche in environmental efforts, benefiting both global efforts to keep oceans healthy and local community efforts for social and economic betterment. As with several other nonprofits I have volunteered with, perhaps their older computers could be updated, as well as some of their software programs. Luckily that is not visible from their site, which incorporates recent technological innovations and useful tools in order to best serve their online community. Overall I have found volunteering for The Coral Reef Alliance to be an informative and warming experience. The Coral Reef Alliance team is a truly wonderful crowd.

UniversalGiving™
April 21, 2010

I originally volunteered for UniversalGiving as part of the Disney volunteering program, where I was searching for nonprofits in other countries for UniversalGiving to put on their site. I enjoyed my work so much, I decided to come out and help in a greater way. They provide a lot of opportunities for people that are trying to understand the nonprofit world, and they have fairly comprehensive systems in place to allow new additions to be very much a part of their organization. I felt I was immediately given responsibilities and so this has been invaluable as an experience.

I met a range of people volunteering at UniversalGiving, overall the staff is very diverse and come from all walks in life. I was especially impressed by the energy and dedication of the CEO, who takes an interest in all interns, volunteers, and staff.
