My son has worked with ISF for 5 years now and he's enjoyed every minute of it. I've seen so much love, compassion and dedication from everyone working within ISF it's so beautiful. They work so hard to support Animals, People and the environment along with teaching children kindness and compassion. ISF is an amazing nonprofit foundation that is doing so much good.
We are so happy your family is a part of ISF! Thank you for being involved and helping our shared mission.
The Ian Somerhalder Foundation has opened my eyes in regards to sustainability & the protection of our Earth. I was able to volunteer for a beach clean up in Flint, Michigan in hopes of bringing awareness of the terrible conditions of the water in Flint. It also brings awareness of polluted ocean water all over the world. The day was dedicated to the youth. They genuinely care about the health of our planet because of ISF & because their parents know how important sustainability is. If the youth can have a clear understanding of the negative effects certain things have on our planet today, it can really pave the way to a healthier & greener planet.
We are so happy you were able to be a part of the Flint Michigan youth day clean up. Thank you so much for your involvement in ISF.
Hands down the most generous and professional non-profit I've ever volunteered with! I'm proud and honored to serve its mission.
Thank you. We are so happy to have your family involved.
We love ISF and their work in getting our children involved in community work! Their passion for our kids is incredible!
Thank you! Our youth is incredible. We are so thankful for them.
My name is Candi Fair and I am a volunteer within the Ian Somerhalder Foundation's Youth Division.
I personally, have seen the positive impact that this foundation has on our youth of today. ISF gives young people the tools, platforms and encouragement and education to help them find their passions and strive to see them come to life. I feel VERY fortunate to get the honor to work with kids who are actively and passionately engaging each other and their communities to "Do Better" for our world, to make an actual, tangible difference..... that's where ISF stands apart from other foundations.....the kids have the control to participate in projects and grassroot inituitives or any other positive ,change making ideas they want .....and they are doing it big!!!
I have participated in two ISF YOUTH DAYS with these awesome young people. ISF YOUTH DAYS are days set aside for our ISF YOUTH to come together in different parts of our country to roll up their sleeves and volunteer at specific locations that need our help. From traveling to Flint Michigan to help with their water crisis to traveling to Georgia to volunteer at an animal sanctuary, I have had the AMAZING privilege to witness the passion and excitement of these kids who are eager to help, volunteer, roll up their sleeves and not afraid to use their voices and speak their minds. Their ideas, heart and pure will, encourage me everyday! Thanks to ISF our most valuable resource, our YOUTH, has a voice and are making a positive impact on our world and all it's inhabitants.
Thank you so much for this review Candi and for all you do to help our youth team at ISF.
I was a MobSTIR (Youth Volunteer) for ISF for the year 2016. Firstly, the reason why I applied for the position was because I genuinely loved and still love ISF's purpose. It works towards helping the environment and the creatures in it. The one thing that I believe makes ISF truly stand out amongst all the other non-profits I came across is it's Youth Division; ISF allows the children of today to take part in the glorious work of helping the community. This is very important for the youth of today because they need to learn the responsibility they have towards the world around them and understand the true meaning of love. That is what ISF is for me; love and more love for everyone and everything. I'm from Bangladesh and the way I have been loved and supported by all the ISF members in every way possible is heart touching. I worked on a couple of projects for ISF but, growing vegetables was the best because it was the first time I had done full planting myself. ❤️
Thank you so much for being a part of ISF and for so actively being a positive change in this world.
My experience with the Ian Somerhalder foundation has been nothing but a positive one. I have had the opportunity to work with so many motivated kids who really care about making an impact in the world. The organization has been doing so many incredible projects in order to better our environment and social climate and is still continuing to do so.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us Chloe. We are so happy to have you as a part of ISF.
I have been an ISF youth volunteer for over a year now and I could not be more in love! Everyone who is involved with ISF are the most friendly and caring people you will ever meet. This foundation is willing to do what it takes to make a positive impact in this world, and it is the most beautiful thing ever!
We are so happy you are involved in ISF!
My son is six years old and is incredibly passionate about the environment - animal and ocean protection, in particular. He loves sharks and wants to be a shark biologist when he grows up.
There are not a lot of organizations that involve youth as thoroughly as ISF.
This organization not only provides him with ideas and information, it connects him to likeminded people and allows him to have a voice, even at the age of six.
This organization does tremendous work. I see it every day in how my son is learning to view and help the world.
We are so happy to have both you and your son involved in ISF.
This foundation provided funds to our rescue to help us cover the medical bills of three pups with parvo. With this help, all three survived and have found loving homes. Thank you for helping us help dogs!
We are so glad we were able to help and so happy to know they have all recovered and found their forever homes. Thank you so much for all you do to help animals in need!
