Review for Austin Pets Alive, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I thought that I was only going to be working with TLAC who worked in conjunction with APA to help my resume. My college professors recommended volunteerism to help set myself apart from the competition. I was so lucky to have fallen into this opportunity because it not only "helped my resume" but I felt like I got to give back to a cause I believe in and allowed me to get closer to my family because I volunteered with my cousin. I ended up later getting a rescue dog and it changed my life. This organization is a tireless, well-oiled volunteering machine, but needs as much help as it can get. I love APA and TLAC and totally believe in it.

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

Learning more about animals and about how non-profits work.

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

Get more volunteers by making more people focus not only on caring for the amazing volunteers but community outreach.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

More resources provided from the community to make staff less thinly stretched.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I adopted a pet and it changed my life.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Fulfilled and like I helped.

Role:  Volunteer & Worked at TLAC that worked alongside APA. .

Review for Crossmen Productions Inc, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps is an organization that shows people the true meaning of selflessness. You all get together for one goal, one common experience. Crossmen shows all different facets of chances for emotional growth. Responsibility, maturity, and character is what the Crossmen stands for, and it's what it provides for every member who joins. The strength of the alumni is vital for the growth of the corps, and as we all now, money is tight. However, it's something worth investing in. Being asked to describe details or specific events doesn't do this experience justice. There are high times and low times, periods of extreme happiness and devastating blows. In the three months that this organization grows during their time on tour, it surpasses any imaginable description that any one person can offer. It's something that shouldn't be looked over or tossed away. The Crossmen deserve the chance to grow stronger every season and be provided with amazing educational and networking opportunities, just like any other activity.

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

I personally learned more than just 11 minutes of music; I learned who I am as a person and what I am capable of. I wouldn't be where I am today with out this experience.

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

Start more programs to raise money for members who can't afford to pay their tuition fees.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I was a member from 2007-2009 and an alumni from 2009 to current.
