Review for ConnectAbility, Inc., Dahlonega, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with Connectability through their Sidekicks program for 8 years and not only have I been touched by the magnitude of the organization in such a small community but also have changed my understanding of children and adults with special needs. Every month is a party with my friends. The events are different than any event imaginable. There is always a positive and uplifting atmosphere.

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

Our community and abroad. Organizations around the world have contacted Connectability about how to achieve the same success. Connectability provides services for quite a large group compared to the size of the community.

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

Try to figure out how to duplicate this in other regions.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

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

Life-changing

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

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

It taught me that children and adults with specials needs make as much an impact on our lives as people who are classified as "normal."

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Uplifting and life changing

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011
