I am very happy that I had the opportunity to volunteer at Catamount Institute, meet all of you very motivated and dynamic folks, and learn a bit about the non-profit sector.  It's been very interesting and impressive and you should all be very proud for making Catamount what it is.  I have faith that your organization will continue to have a growing positive impact on the Colorado Springs community. 

Thank you very much and take care!      

Sincerely, Jen – Catamount Volunteer
