My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ohio Environmental Council, Columbus, OH, USA
I have been working as a marketing and communications intern at the OEC for the past few months, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the organization. The volunteers, Board members, staff, and fellow interns are all fully committed to furthering the OEC’s mission to secure the healthiest air, land, and water for all Ohioans. The OEC constantly interacts with legislative and lawmaking bodies to advocate for our environment and do what’s absolutely necessary to fight for our generation, as well as future generations rights to a healthy environment. On that note, I was taken aback by the amount of effort, energy, and dedication the OEC’s staff, volunteers, and Board members put forth at this year’s Lobby Day, both before and during the event.
Also, I had the unique opportunity to travel with OEC’s Jack Shaner to Malabar State Farm Park for a press event dealing with the current issues surrounding fracking in Ohio State Park’s; his passion for environmental advocacy and his great desire to improve Ohio’s environment are both overwhelming and inspiring. Another event I worked at with the organization, The Earth Day Celebration at Franklin Park Conservatory, demonstrated to me how OEC gathers so many volunteers, and why so many volunteers return to work with the OEC. The organization shows such great appreciation to all those who are willing to not only help Ohio’s environment, but who are also eager to contribute to the OEC’s success. Overall, if you are someone who is “green-minded,” and is looking to get involved; I would highly suggest looking into the OEC and the work they do.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The cooperation amongst the staff, volunteers, interns, and Board members, which reflects the collectiveness within the organization. The various ways the OEC challenges, interacts, and works with the legislature and other governmental bodies, which highlights their dedication to Ohio’s environment. The events the OEC participates in, such as Earth Day Celebrations, which indicates the lengths to which they will go to advocate for our environment.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Try to increase participation throughout Ohio.
