My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Art Studio Inc, Miami, FL, USA
I came to Miami with a group of students from Rollins College to learn more about immigration in the area. We started off in Homestead, working with the farmworkers association. We then came to Miami to work with Art Studio Inc. We've been working one on one with these children and it's been a great opportunity to get to know each and every one of them on an individual level. These children presumably do not get enough attention and at times, do not feel loved. We, as a group, provided those for the Art Studio class. These children need stability in their lives, since they are not getting much elsewhere whether because of family or political or financial reasons. The two days we've been working with the children we were able to provide some love and some stability. I just hope that Art Studio Inc and their cause isn't forgotten, because those children would be given up on as well without anyone to depend on. They need volunteers. They need some sort of stability from a person or mentor they can look up to.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I felt extremely helpful throughout this experience, even though it was for only two days. I have a lot of respect for the volunteers who continue to work with these kids everyday, and can only hope that more people begin to realize that they children need them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to advertise more... I would try to find a bigger and well-known company that would sponsor our advertisement. And I would also try to partner up with a community college or university in order to look for more volunteers.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Made me appreciate my life for what it is.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Guilty, upset, loved.... changed my life
