It was a great experience working with the seniors. I helped them to learn how to use the computers and work online. They were happy and thankful because of the help. It was an amazing experience that helped me to get involved with them. I really appreciate the opportunity that this organization is giving me to work on what I want to study.

This organization helped me look our community in a more proactive way, due to all the
non profit activities they promote throughout the year and then
they make it happen. As an student, I never imagined interacting out of my inner circle, which is school and work, but this company enhanced my point of views and thoughts towards society. Activities that involved helping out elderly and community as a whole.

Community Improvement Organization is the best place, I did there my service learning hours for my SPS1017 class of Miami Dade College. This is one of the best volunteer organization that I have been. They really help the community, and they teach us as a student the importance of helping our community and also they teach us how service learning is important for our future career.
They are so comprehensive with your time and always help you to do your hours on time and get the best and the most from your service hours. I will recommend it to every one.

I had a very great time here at Hialeah Gardens City Hall. The staff was very informative and gave me a lot of information I'm sure to use in the future. I mostly helped out with the fixing and maintenance of their Computer room and learned lots of useful stuff.

CIO has to be one of the most driven organizations out there. They are determined to help others and go above and beyond to do so. They make sure to help the community as well each other. The students who volunteer from school all learn something new and look at things in a whole new way. I am very pleased and grateful to have been able to participate in the group and help with as much as i could. I recommend everyone to join and look into the organization because it will definitely make in impact on yourself, and on others.

I'm going to be as honest as possible, i had no idea what this organization was about until my first day volunteering. Oh boy, how i refused to go and the excuses i would make but after i met Iris and found out what her organization was about, i wish i wouldve joined earlier. This organization is really heart warming. it opens your eyes to the needs of the people and how you too can be a helping hand to a family. As human beings we forget the true values of life and forget to appreciate things but this organization motivates you to be a little less selfless and alot more giving. A little help can go a long way, its a pay it forward plan, once you help someone in need, then they are able to pay it forward into another person that needs it. Its an excellent choice to get involved and be aware of the needs of your community.

Iris is a very inspirational person, and she really changed my point of view towards helping out the community. She opened my eyes and made me realize that the community needs us, and we as human beings need each other to improve ourselves and where we live.
