A great place for the local area teens to hang. A great group of support staff too. A clean fun location for students outside their home environment.

I think First Glance is probably the best thing to happen to the Kenmore area. For years the kids had nothing to do and continually got into trouble. Since it's inception, the kids have had a warm, loving place to go where they are totally accepted for who they are. The leaders are not there to babysit, but to mentor. It's a bridge between the kids and the local churches...a great set-up!

First Glance is a wonderful place for students in the Kenmore community to come as they are and be loved by leaders. The leaders give so much of themselves to show the love Christ has for each one of the students.

I have been involved with First Glance since the night they first opened. It is, over nine years later, still one of the things I most look forward to every week. The leadership of First Glance is passionate about teens and the community of Kenmore. What an outstanding organization to be involved with!

The Great!

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

the church I work with. Many of the students from First Glance have furthered their connection to Christ by being involved in our church's youth ministry.

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

The passion this organization has to be the best at what it does. I love to be around people who have no time to be lazy or stagnant in what they're doing. First Glance has NEVER been that way.

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

Passionate, committed, pretty much sold out. What better could you ask for?

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

be more stable in its long term plans, its ability to staff, and more successful in its mission over the long haul!

I love First Glance! They have a heart to serve the students and families in Kenmore through demonstrating the love of God in very practical and hands-on ways, reaching students where they are, and not just where they want them to be.This includes building an indoor skate park for them, providing clothes, counseling and baby supplies to pregnant teens, running a stop-having-sex club, and providing a safe environment with solid boundaries for students to hang out at. First Glance is also a great place to serve, helping others to reach out to a community that they wouldn't normally be around and helping others to feel a bit of God's heart for the "least of these"

I have been a part of First Glance for 4 years now.And I admire the vision we have for the students.Which is to connect the students to Christ and the church through a loving non-threatining enviroment. And no matter what happens at First Glance the students always come first, in all the decisions that are made.It is sometimes easy to lose focus on our purpose but the staff does a wonderful job on keep leaders in focus on what it is we do.I have been blessed with opportunities to do things for some students that there parents can't or just won't do. Like help learn how to drive a car, take them to a park, or even support them in a school activity they are a part of. And to walk in on a friday night and have a dozen or so young walk up to me and shake my hand or give me a high five is an awesome feeling since I older than alot of their parents are.

It has been my privilege to volunteer as a leader with First Glance for the past two years. This is an organization filled with people who are passionate about serving students. It's a dynamic atmosphere where we as leaders build relationships with students and are then able to truly meet the needs in their lives. What a great opportunity to impact the lives of these kids and teach them values and integrity that starts with a personal relationship with Christ.

I have been blessed to see First Glance grow from the very beginning. I came on as a leader when there were about 6 of us total and maybe 25 kids. Now there are well over 30 leaders and always over 100 students on a given night. It's been amazing to see this organization grow and really see the students take ownership of it. The building meets many areas of the students lives and most have had a part in building/decorating it. A lot of these students even come on as leaders once they graduate and help with the younger students. This organization strives to give teenagers a safe, non-threatening environment to hang out in. First Glance is a place where students can be themselves, while staying off the streets. I am so thankful to have been a part of it all these years and can't wait to see what the future holds.

Buy a bigger, more efficient building for reaching out to more students as well as buy better equipment, hire additional full time staff, and buy resources to help these students fulfill their potential.

As a community organizer for other service organizations in the Kenmore community I have had the joy of working with First Glance students and volunteers since its inception nine years ago. It has been wonderful watching the organization grow and to see the benefit reaped by the students and the entire community. First Glance exemplifies what a nonprofit should be. It is unsurpased in the quality of its volunteers and its committment to the youth in this community. They have found creative ways to reach out and to postively influence the students. I feel blessed that I have recently been able to take a more active role in helping First Glance grow.

The Great!

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

The students from First Glance have served as the main body of volunteers for a series of yearly community events. Acting as hosts, craft aides, costumed characters, and set up and clean up crew.

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

seeing the tremendous impact that they have had on "at risk" kids.

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

extremely dedicated, selfless, and talented people giving freely of their time, talent, and self.

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

reach a greater number of "at risk" with additional and more extensive programs.

I have been a volunteer leader at First Glance now for almost three years. In that time I have been able to witness the great changes that take place in the lives of students due to the dedication of the people at First Glance. My life has also been impacted by the joy of serving God in my community and being able to take part in such positive changes in these kids.

The Great!

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

countless changed lives. Kids turning away from drugs, alcohol and abusive relationships. Kids discovering Gods love and the joy of serving others.
