Review for Timucuan Parks Foundation Inc, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started with TPF just for the high school service hours required to graduate, but quickly found the experience to be far more valuable than the hours I was getting. The people I found myself working with were very pleasant, and the tasks we were set to do were easy, fun, and effective. I gained lots of influential contacts which allowed me far more opportunities later on, and as a result very nearly took what would have been my first job, had the Coronavirus not said otherwise.

Typically, the organizers will divide our collective party into smaller parties to go out and perform tasks. I've been lucky enough to be partnered many times with older and more mature individuals, and on only one occasion had to work with a teenager my own age. This was my only negative experience here, and for the amount of events I've attended, I can say it's a rare occurrence you'll get a really bad apple.
