I've volunteered and worked with many non profits over 15 years, and this is the first one to make me feel like I can take ownership of my volunteer position. My input and background was used to its full advantage, leaving me feeling like I was more than useful, I was absolutely necessary and a part of the team. Clare, the Director, is open and warm and welcomes all feedback and ideas, implementing them effectively. After my first project in November ended, I signed up for 2 more and am excited to help in even more areas. I'd highly recommend volunteering with CVA!
