Review for Sierra Club, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered for the Sierra Club as an international trip leader and as a member of the India Advisory Council. I cannot think of a better way to spend my time; the organization is fantastic, the staff dedicated, and fellow volunteers inspiring. It is such a pleasure to feel your efforts are helping to produce a positive outcome in environmental conservation in the world.

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

the way we have influenced trip participants in becoming aware of conservation issues both at home and abroad

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

hire more staff under the Executive Director to handle different aspects of the work, and diversify into different countries

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

the camaraderie and mutual respect for all people

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

exceptionally dedicated, and generous with their time and expertise

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

improve the lives of thousands of people suffering from environmental degradation in third world countries

Ways to make it better...

they had more staff to share the heavy workload

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

the indifference of the average American citizen to the amount of harm we cause to the environment by our lifestyle choices

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

the Sierra Club deserves everybody's moral and financial support in the monumental task it has taken for our planet

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
