This organization has real promise and is already producing real results. When you couple that with the 501(3)C tax break, if someone is interested in backing a non-profit, I feel Youth Valut is a no brainer.

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

as a consultant, helping the organization prepare for their future.

Can you ever do too much to help steer juveniles in the right direction? I belive that the celebrity crime briefs on www.lawyeruplive.com will complement the online Crim-Law curriculum and truly prevent juvenile crime. From what I understand 1300 users access their pages each month, if it has a positive effect on just 1% that's over 1300 lives helped each year!

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

a research based manner... Research that was then used to create briefs for www.lawyeruplive.com

This non-profit was inspired by the A&E program, First 48... Seeing juveniles, often w/o sound role models, commit senseless crimes and throw away their lives, often w/o knowledge of what makes an act criminal was terribly moving. Also, if we presume that Liberty is valuable. And that Knowledge is Power. YVI empowers youth w/ the Power to understand what makes an act criminal, along with examples of how folks who have opted to travel that negative road, so they will have a mind map, serving as a model on how to behave, in order to preserve there Liberty. With over 1300 visitors to our web sites each month, we look forward to making an impact that will reduce juvenile crime.

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

My experience with Youth Vault Inc. has been great. I have learned a lot in the short time I have volunteered for the organization about how our celebrity obsessed culture can influence youth and how important it is to educate American kids on how the criminal system works.

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

having conversations with friends, family, and fellow law students. So many people have commented on the fact that it seems legal education is missing in many public school systems. I think Youth Vault is picking up that slack.

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

dedicated and posessed an admirable amount of conviction in what Youth Vault is accomplishing.

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

expand to schools across the nation that desperately need a program like this.

I love this charity, for it's mission as well as the forward thinking, proactive role it takes in crime prevention. I like that the readers can give feedback on the cases, too. Some of the other curriculum offered, includes flashcards that we are working towards putting together for the kids, which I think will give both parents and teens an additional avenue for learning about how to prevent crime within the family, as well as giving the younger readers a better conceptual understanding of crime, why it happens, and how it can be avoided. There are also assemblies offered, which are really great, especially for kids whose parents don't have internet access. My biggest hope for this charity is that we can be the difference in the lives of young people. If my efforts can save one person from being killed, one business from being robbed, or one person from taking on a life of drugs, I will be fully satisfied. Of course, I would like to be able to affect more than one person, but I think that sometimes just helping one person directly can also lead to a domino effect, thereby helping many others, in turn. I believe in paying it forward, and that is what I think the Youth Vault charity is doing best. If everyone just did a little something good, every day, we could live in a very peaceful, strong, self sufficient society. See, getting help when you are in need is perfectly okay. Helping an old lady carry her groceries.. helping a single mom with bread and milk a couple of times a month, watching the kids for the parents who live like the old woman in the shoe, giving money to the homeless, donating clothes, etc.. all of these things can change a person's life. It only takes a smile, sometimes, if one can afford it, to change the direction in which a stranger's day is heading. So go ahead- Smile big, and pay it forward. I know I will. =)

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

Just posting my own blog posts onto my facebook page, I have gotten some interesting replies from friends, who might be going through a rough time, and needed a little motivation to make the choice to change their attitude and direction.

I have not experienced the results, by I am confident that Youth Vault can make a difference

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

I would promote the site more, so that more young adults are aware of its existence.

The ability to share knowlege in a way that benefits society.

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

Awesome

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

Really make a difference. I think that the return on such an investment would be immense

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to write. I am working and don't have enough time to do legal research

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

Getting the word out about it's existence

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

Kids are a blank slate, if they have problems it is most likely the result of external pressures
