Review for SOLE Effects, Poway, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having Volunteered at SOLE Effects, in Spring of 2017, I walked away from that experience with a whole new energy. In my experience at SOLE Effects, I got to be the leader of the SWITCH program, help train future leadership coaches, and even assist in raising money for SOLE Effects by pitching their idea to school's and grant committees. The whole semester got me to take an inner look into who I am and what I want from life.

While volunteering with SOLE Effects, I also was applying for colleges to finish my degree. I got accepted into NYU's undergraduate program at Stern School of Business, the number 2 school in the nation for my degree in Finance! I have always been a strong student, yet NYU had initially rejected my application the year before. I am a firm believer that volunteering with SOLE Effects played a role in my acceptance there.

I am forever grateful to Kevin and Karen for all their mentorship and belief in who I am. They are all about empowering others to be their best selves, and I HIGHLY recommend SOLE Effects for any college student looking to volunteer, school looking to help their students grow, and philanthropists looking to make a difference. SOLE Effects is that difference.
