Review for Sierra Club, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love being a Sierra Club Outings Leader because the participants are so appreciative of our help. They want to "get out" and we help them with our experience in the wilderness and the conservation information we share with them. Sierra has a great group of staff members who educate us on how to be strong Outings Leaders so we are confident when we are on the trail or on the water. If we have any questions they are always there to help us. In addition to all of that Outings are fun!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They trained me to be a good Outings Leader: group relations skills, orienteering, trail cuisine, conservation education, leave no trace, how to laugh at hail storms!

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

Make the website more robust for all outings: national, international and local. We are competing with many travel options. We need to look even more enticing and be easier to navigate. Because our trips are great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The confidence I have gained by being self sufficient in the wilderness, climbing mountains and helping to care for groups of people who are out of their element is a joy!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

They are all really helpful, kind, patient and smart. The winning combination.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help us have a healthier planet for the children, bears, eagles, fish, you and me!

Ways to make it better...

Even more people wanted to "get out"!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Helping everyone see the benefits of a healthy planet. So many people think this is a long term issue when it is an issue we are priviledged to address today.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Come outside with us!
