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
