TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST INTERNS/VOLUNTEERS

  • “Volunteering with sprouts was an awesome experience. Very smooth volunteer process, I’ve done it several times and get the right amount of reminders. Upon arrival, their operations director provides an overview of the program and then kids start arriving. The chefs always are excited to work with the kids and we always make such delicious foods and learn so much about cooking and health. It’s always awesome to see a shy or nervous child’s personality emerge while cooking. Sprouts is doing really amazing and necessary work in our community.”

It was a real joy and I hope to collaborate with Sprouts in the future!”

Being able to enter a workplace where people are just as passionate and excited about food and the power it has in bringing people together as I am was amazing and really exciting. As soon as you join the team you are trusted with responsibilities and are made to feel like your opinions and work count for something in the larger organization. Working with a collaborative team was very helpful as I was able to gain real-time feedback and work through my tasks with the diverse perspectives of my team.
