The plays I've seen and the discussions I've been a part of have really helped me gain and spread knowledge on subjects that I've always felt weren't talked about enough. AddVerb has a great style of presenting information in a way that catches people's attention and helps correct the myths that people have.

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

my high school. When I helped bring one of their plays to my school, I witnessed the impact it had on the teachers and students and I saw all of the great discussions that followed.

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

reduce the costs of the plays, which I think would make Addverb's messages more accessible to more people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the caring and well thought-out way they deliver such important messages.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing, very thoughtful and energetic, passionate.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

put on plays and host discussions all over the country every day!

Ways to make it better...

it didn't cost so much to bring a play to a school/community.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

making their services accessible to a bigger population.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have seen Add Verb presentations at several schools. At the time, I was doing similar presentations for a different organization, but the Add Verb ones were much more involved and had a well-organized small-group conversation afterwards and curricula support for teachers and schools to have more conversations before and after the show. I was very impressed with the whole process. Years later, and I still follow AVP to see how they're doing, and periodically see if a show is near me so I can go see one again. When my child is old enough, I'll be taking him too.... Every school should have them come in, and I'll be pushing my son's schools in years to come to bring them in too.

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

Various schools throughout Maine.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The interaction and feedback generated by youth who attend a show.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide its shows to schools without charge.

Add Verb's productions are Powerful. Dispensing of candy-coating, they tell their stories with dramatic simplicity that leave you deeply moved. Their follow-up conversations with their audience, and collaboration with participating schools is brilliant--paving the way to affect real change and action.

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

Watching their progress as they've grown and become noticed.
