My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for CityScience, Brooklyn, NY, USA
I have been volunteering for about two months now as a college intern, and I can proudly say this has been an incredibly enlightening experience beyond any learning I have done in a traditional classroom. There is nothing comparable to learning hands-on, and by volunteering at CityScience I feel like I have not only gained insight on STEM education and non-profits in general, but have become a more motivated, open-minded worker. Each time I am in the office, I am given many different tasks and constantly feel like I am doing something valuable with each completed task. There is something so gratifying about contributing to a company that is truly improving a societal issue.
I recommend volunteering for CityScience no matter how much time you think you can commit. The experience is invaluable, both promoting an incredibly poignant cause and doing something gratifying that you can look back on. There are many different angles to volunteering from education based volunteering to office, administrative, or business volunteering. This is an organization that definitely needs more attention and more funding, and any time volunteered is just another step to getting CityScience to its full potential.
