Recently, Young Arts hosted an opening reception for an exhibit of art by school children. My niece was one of the children whose art was shown. It was such a thrilling event! All the kids turned into little stars when they saw their art on the wall of the gallery. It was a real reception for them. Food and drinks, a photographer, beautifully displayed art. This event worked miracles on my nieces self-esteem. Young Arts brings art to kids and exhibits their art in order to make them feel good about themselves. I was witness to how well this concept works.

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

during the reception I described above. When the children saw their art framed, and hanging on a wall, they were exhilarated.

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

I wish more people knew about Young Arts.

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

the unique nature of Young Arts. I don't think I've ever heard of such a service to children before.

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

very outgoing and informative. They were extremely welcoming to the kids and their families.

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

really make a difference in society by using art as a tool to heal our next generation - our children.

Ways to make it better...

I knew that this organization enjoyed more publicity.

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

... as far as I would imagine, funding and publicity.

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

Congratulations, Young Arts - I was so very impressed with what I saw. Best of all, I loved how my niece thrived through this organization.
