My Son attends the Quantum program at the Seymore Osman Community Center. Since he started there last year, I have watched him grow into a well rounded young man. He has been exposed to so many new experiences because of Quantum. The progams offered at the Seymore Osman Community Center are invaluable to me and many other families in this small community. There is little for our youth to do after school and the Quantum program has provided so much for so many young people who need guidance. We have been fortunate to have such a wonderful program with its wonderful directors and personnel in our lives. The Quantum program has met and exceeded any expectations I have had in everyway. The teen based programs really give the kids a sense of community and family. Quantum staff have worked dilligently with the kids to complete daily homework, develope study skills, leadership skills, etiquette, an appreciation for culture and the arts and give back to their community through various community service ventures.

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

that it has helped my son develope better sutdy and homework skills.

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

change nothing

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

that my son enjoys helping others.

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

unbelievably stupendous. I could not say enough about the staff's approach to the parents and with the children in the programs. They are caring attentive and go out of their way at every turn.

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

do anything! I've seen it with my own eyes on a much smaller scale

Ways to make it better...

we were aware of the program earlier!

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

all of the diversities of children from so many different background with so many complicated issues.

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

the Seymore Osgood Community Center and the Quantum program have made our lives richer.

My son attends the Quantum Opportunity Program at the Seymour Osman Community Center. This program provides a safe structured after school program, providing tutoring, homework help and enrichment programs. The staff is experienced, and provides an extremely positive support system for the teens. In addition to the school support, they provide many community service opportunities as well as social skills building opportunities. We would have been at a loss without this program - my son has been exposed to new opportunities, new people and has had a very positive experience.

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

The supportive staff, the positive role models they provide, and the learning and enrichment opportunities provided by this program.

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

Open, caring, available to assist with any concerns and issues. The staff provides a caring environment and ensures all the participants are involved and satisfied.

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

Service many more children at risk in the community, provide for a safe environment for the youth in the area. With limited funding they manage to support a large number fo families, but there are many more who could and would benefit from this program.

My experience with the SOCC program has been nothing short of excellent.I am a full time working parent and my 8 year old daughter started attending this program after school last year. They provide a safe,structured, and positive environment for children. I watched my child grow in so many ways and learn so many positive things.They even help with homework...bonus!The enrichment programs are fabulous, they involved volunteers from the community and SOCC staff working with the children. My daughter learned things from cooking, nutrition, dance, and really enjoyed girls night out. The staff is amazing, and I am truly grateful for such a wonderful staff and program.
