My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ecology in Classrooms and Outdoors (ECO), Portland, OR, USA
I have been extremely impressed with the ECO program. The staff is dedicated, experienced and exceptionally talented at reaching kids in meaningful ways. In addition, the curricula is structured to be student-centric and hands-on, which maximizes retention of learning. Classes focus on ecology with links to other aspects of student learning, which expands the value of each class exponentially. Finally, if you were to watch a video of the instructors (or better yet, sit in on a class), you would see the amazing rapport they generate with students. They use a wonderful mix of humor and engaging questions to keep kids focused on learning. I could not say enough good things about this non-profit!!
