Volunteering at the Brighton Center has easily been one of the most rewarding times of my life. Never have I seen such a group of employees so dedicated to assisting others.

I worked with Brighton Center's emergency shelter for runaway and homeless youth. At the time I was a trainer providing direction to 80 emergency shelters throughout the southeastern United States. Brighton Center staff were prominent at every event we hosted. They are known for leading the field, accepting the challenge, and valuing young people as equals and contributors to their own success. I don't work with them directly now, but thanks to their unparalleled social networking efforts, led by some guy named "Bear" I can keep up with their efforts to motivate and serve their community. In that way, Brighton Center serves me daily down here in Florida, connecting their mission to the people in a way that continues to move and inspire me.

I volunteer for Brighton Center because they work "with" their clients. Because they have 35 programs, so they're tackling issues from early childhood education to homeless teens to out-of-work & hard-working families to seniors' taxes. Because they work all over Northern Kentucky. Because the vibe when you walk in the door is one of respect and caring. Because they're helping to build a better community - and that community is mine.

After learning about the Brighton Centre and the direct work it does in the community I was quite impressed. The organization has a very grass roots feel, where it can mobilize the local neighbourhoods by working with them one on one and providing them tangible projects for change in their own backyard.

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

increase their PR - this organization is only known to the few networks that it works with, to increase its public profile would be a huge help
