Review for THE TRUST FOR HIDDEN VILLA, Los Altos Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Hidden Villa Environmental Education Program (HVEEP) Farm and Wilderness Guide for three years now. I look forward each week during the school year to help elementary students discover and fall in love with nature. We take groups of up to eight students on a trek through the wilderness, interact with farm animals and explore our organic garden -- all in a single, action-packed day! You know you have had a great day when a child says, "I have never had so much fun! This is more fun than playing Wii !"

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

Review for THE TRUST FOR HIDDEN VILLA, Los Altos Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a member of the Mission Fulfillment Committee I had the opportunity to help create and launch the Hidden Villa Slide show with narrative which tells the story of how our non-profit educational organization uses its organic farm, wilderness and community to inspire our children and future leaders to help create an sustainable and socially just environment. The staff, board and volunteers are highly creative, dedicated, motivated and a positive focus for change in our society.

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

Extremely high morale of the staff, volunteers and board which energizes everyone.

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

Always positive, friendly and outgoing.

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

It could enrich its endowment enough to ensure financial self-sustainability while expanding it reach to the Latino community which can be a more beneficiary of our programs.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
