Review for Thrive Alliance, Redwood City , CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been a member of Thrive since 2001. I originally joined the organization to network with non-profits on behalf of my students for potential internships. What I received was so very much more. I had access to a wealth of resources via the listserv and networking which assisted me in building a strong service-learning, volunteerism and leadership program at the college. Currently I'm a member of the board of Thrive. As a board member I am able to network and make connections for my colleagues in education, local government and non-profit to services and support that are not easily obtaining in other ways. Lastly, I'm a resident of San Mateo and on the board of my local homeowners associate. As a local resident it is validating to know that in San Mateo County we have an organization that is truly the voice of non-profit for the betterment of our community. Thrive is an invaluable organization in continuing to keep San Mateo County on the forefront of creating a collaborative community for all.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

invite more for profits to participate and assist in building a collaborative community for all San Mateo County residents.
