Review for Southwest Conservation Corps, Durango, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

This experience challenged me in ways that still allow me to grow and achieve new heights in my life, 5 years later. The very nature of the challenging work as well as the personal interactions have pushed me beyond my limits more than I could have possibly imagined. The work keeps getting more interesting and inspiring - We've come along way and grown so fast, the dynamics of the program keep expanding... With expansion comes a sort of mass production. There are pros and cons to it - pros being that our program works in the most beautiful remote places in the southwest. The work being offered is more meaningful and diverse. The cons being that I feel to a certain degree that SCC has lost the personal touch.

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

The connection with the natural world and the respect for a sustainable community

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

varied - from brillant to baffling, bashful to bizarre, buoyant but hardly ever boring
