My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Friends of the Arava Institute, Boston, MA, USA
Volunteering at the Friends of the Arava Institute has changed the way I view the interplay between society and the environment. Gaining an appreciation for the caliber of the individuals, and the vision, behind the Institute has instilled in me a greater hope for the future. My lasting impression of interning at the Friends of The Arava Institute: the laughs I shared with students, co-workers and fellow interns.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing a mutual respect for cultural differences develop among the students, while at the same time seeing the individuals of the Institute brought closer together through the common ground of tackling environmental issues.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the lifelong relationships I developed with the amazing people who work there.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
bright, energetic, and positive. Eager to help and to see their work make a difference
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Build a network of alumni to engage in outreach to highlight the bonds of friendship made through trans-boundary partnership. Also, fund more research to help promote sustainable solutions to water resource management and alternative energy needs.
Ways to make it better...
the some of the spare housing units on the campus had better insulation to keep the rooms cooler in the summer.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
Political fallout from regional conflicts whose scope are out the Institutes control, but whose consequences resonate with international student and researcher cooperation.
