Review for The Mentoring Partnership Of Southwestern Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Mentoring Partnership brings youth together with community leaders to build fruitful relationships. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable within the community. If you have an opportunity to work in any capacity with the Mentoring Partnership of SouthWest PA, I wouldn't miss out on it.

Review for United Jewish Federation Of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The United Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh is an amazing organization which uniquely unites a diverse spectrum of Jewish people for many common causes. Unlike other city's federations, which ten dot be dominated by one political ideology, religious denomination, or other faction of the grester Jewish community, Pittsburgh's Federation engages liberals and conservatives, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Lubavich, Reconstructionist, and Secular Jews in common efforts to fortify the community and build a better Pittsburgh. Having just moved to Pittsburgh from a much latrger Jewish community, this strikes me as the most impressive facet of the UJF of Pittsburgh. Not to diminish the other work UJF does, I have benfited directly from programs such as Shalom Pittsburgh and J'Burgh which provide meaningful Jewish expereinces to young people. I have also volunteered with the local branch of the JCPA here, CPAC, which addresses diverse concerns ranging from the genocide in Sudan, the Iranian threat, promoting sustainable energy use, and the Jewish Unity Project, to fighting gun violence on a local level. In short, UJF Pittsburgh is amazing... I look forward to being successful enough to make a generous contribution.

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

experienceing the diversity and wisdom of those involved

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

diverse. Some are very passionate and social, others less so.

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

This organization has well over 10 million bucks, and does phenominal work with it.

Ways to make it better...

communication was clearer

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

An againg and shrinking community in Pittsburgh

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

you should donate now.

Review for Coro Center For Civic Leadership, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Apply for the Coro Fellows program at the Coro Center for Civic Leadership to be challenged and engaged. Coro provides fellows with incredible access to community decision makers, and showcases tools to develop future leadership throughout the community. The Coro opportunity is worthwhile and the people one meets through this program will teach them, yielding unforseen benefits for years to come. Moreover, the program is affordable and earns credit toward the Heinz school at Carnegie Mellon.

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