In volunteering with the Dannon Project I feel the agency is such a delightful place. All the staff were open to listening ears and helping hands. I learned alot from the agency, I gained alot of experience and with that experience I was able to gain full time employment with the Agency. This Agency is well known in the community for their acts of helping and being concerned for the PIPs(previously incarcerated persons). I have really enjoyed working for the Dannon Project. They have done and are doing a great thing.

The Dannon Project is a helpful program that helps young women between the ages of 19 and 21. This program has helped me open my eyes to all the opportunities that are available to me. As a young woman with no parents and no guidance this is truly a blessing.

The Dannon Project is a helpful program for the youth because it gives us the oppunties to express ourselves and it also helps us too define ourselves. This program also allow those that have been locked up nd convicted a chance to prove theirselves to their peers once they r released.The program has shown me so far that its very helpful to the fellow peers.Lisa and Mrs.Wameka are my instructors and they are really nice.I have only been here 2 days and i really enjoy myself. But just to sum it all up the Dannon Project is a very awsome program and they really make you feel at home.

The Dannon Project program is a hands on program that helps people achieve there life long goals. Being that not only are they helping single mothers like me, they are also helping non violent convicted felons that will one day not be judged by there crime but by there character they soon grow to have. Lisa and Neeka are helpful instructors that I know will help me grow in character.
