My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Philadelphia Children's Foundation, Philadelphia, PA, USA
I started my involvement with the PCF as a volunteer and liked it so much that I now serve on its Advisory Board. It has the potential to relate to so many of today's youth in so many ways. Book drives, career days, bookmobile, a work day visit at a company, and many other things both kids and their parents want their children to be exposed to. Look at the PCF website and pitch in and lend a helping hand. This organization rocks!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the reaction of teachers and counsellors to its approach to students of all ages; the awesome effect working within the organization has on the people who volunteer their time and energy to assist others; and the look on the childrens faces who have seen the information the PCF shares to allow them to "imagine the possibilities" this world has to offer to them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try and get more local companies to participate and have visits to their locations and explain what they do and how they do it. Students need to see the actual dayd to day workings of the real world and this organization provides that important contact.
