Review from Guidestar

I took a self-defense course at CAE 14 years ago and felt a connection to the organization that I didn't expect - like this is where I belong. CAE's social philosopy and strong sense of community made me feel safe, strong and whole. For example, at age 61, I started karate and have been training ever since. In anothe environment, being decades older than other students, would be intimidating. The respect, support and encouragement shown to me by the CAE community is shown to each individual whatever their age or circumstance. This philosophy, woven into the fabric of CAE, filters through each of us who are privileged to be a member of the CAE community.

The Great!

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

acceptance as a senior citizen among students and community members who are decades younger than I am; new friends of all ages; gained knowledge of a community of varied socio-economic backgrounds which made me a better person.

Ways to make it better...

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

give more money to CAE so they can hire more staff to do 1)more off-site anti-violence workshops; 2) have an in-house program for teenage boys.

Not only does CAE help teach concrete, physical skills, but they empower women, LGBT individuals, youth, and many others by helping them to find their voice and recognize their own mental and emotional strength. This holistic approach, as well as CAE's dedication to their community, makes it a truly unique organization. From free programs to survivors of domestic violence to free childcare for all of their classes, CAE consistently demonstrates a commitment to thier values of creating a peaceful and equitable world. As a prior student, I continue to benefit from lessons I learned when I first took the self-defense course in 2005. As a prior employee, I am proud to have contributed to such meaningful programs.

My name is Ijana Nathaniel and I worked at the YWCA of Brooklyn and I experienced many workshops through the Center for Anti-Violence Education program. I took a self defense class for women about two years ago, and it helped me a lot. The class was for women who survived, or experienced some sort of assault in the past. The other women in the group benefited from the workshop as well.

This organization is rare and a great asset for the women in girls in Brooklyn NY.

I highly recommend the Center for Anti-Violence Education to win this grant.

Thank you,

Ijana Nathaniel

I would not make any changes. I would only request more of their services.
