Review for Durham Nativity School Inc, Durham, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the pleasure of meeting students from the DNS at a luncheon. I was extremely impressed with not only current students but particularly the graduates who now attend college and continue to mentor. Great job instilling core values and continuity in the students.

Review for American Immigration Council, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an immigration practitioner, I truly appreciate the sound research and guidance presented in the Council's practice advisories. The Council's affiliation with the American Immigration Lawyer's Association means that they are one of the few, if not only advocacy organizations, with direct insight on immigration issues faced by both businesses AND by individuals. They are uniquely positioned and do an excellent job.

Review for Urban Paradise Guild, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined the Urban Paradise Guild board because of the organization's clear and dedicated commitment to the South Florida community. The organization serves as a conduit and a leader for so many organizations that want to do something good for the environment but don't know how. UPG helps volunteers from schools, universities and even other organizations feel connected to their local environment through planting and nature projects in parks, schools and neighborhoods. The guild structure of UPG means that all volunteers and supporters have an important role and opportunity to learn and contribute to the organization's mission. UPG helped me establish a native plant nursery in my neighborhood of El Portal. UPG also offered educational support and guidance when my district sought a grant for planting native trees for our area. Finally, UPG has been a great collaborative partner with other community arts and music organizations that are important to my family...integrating art, music and the environment....No one works harder than UGP's Executive Director, Sam Van Leer...he talks the talk and walks the walk. The UPG website is a great resource for anyone in South Florida who wants to get outside, enjoy nature and be productive--there are volunteer opportunities 7 days a week for all ages...

Review for American Immigration Council, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The American Immigration Council serves a critical role in ensuring that accurate and helpful immigration information is available to the general public as well as immigrant representatives. AIC works on cutting edge legal issues that impact the immigrant community. The AIC educational outreach efforts ensure that immigration issues are humanized--these efforts are critical given the current debate on immigration reform and the need to create realistic and humane immigration laws.
