Review for Environmental Volunteers, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love working with the Environmental Volunteers for many reasons but one of the main ones is that there is so much direct interaction with the students we are in business to reach. Once our volunteers are trained they begin field and classroom work that conveys the training and education to the students of all ages. The EV manages with a very small staff and careful budgeting to reach hundreds of kids each year. Time and money is not wasted. The EV is making a big impact on students lives by bringing the natural world to their attention with great interactive programs.

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

field trips, class rooms and on the board level

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

it is constantly improving and upgrading its materials and programs. Now it is working with other organizations to expand the network to more schools.

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

very dedicated and talented.

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

complete the eco center to make it a center piece for teaching natural history. then it could disseminate its excellent prototype to other areas.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
