Just got involved this Summer volunteering at First Glance. It is a place kids can feel safe, let down their guard and enjoy being a kid. I like the way they give the kids freedom to be themselves, express themselves - yet know how to draw the line and give them the love of Christ. Its a great place to be a part of.

This is an amazing organization. In the middle of a city in which teens are often faced with opportunities to be involved in crime, First Glance gives them other (good) choices. The staff teaches them - what to do to stay out of trouble, how to care for babies born to teen moms, why it's a good idea to abstain from sex, God and giving back to the community. Kudos to FG!

First Glance is run by a stellar group of folks that really care about the people that they're in community with. Noelle and Tim, and the leadership team that they've assembled, model what it means to live into people and not just do things for them. They're heart, vision, and passion are all exemplary.

make such a huge difference in the community that they're reaching. They have great vision for how to practically & effectively reach out to students and proven methods for doing so. The facility expansions they're working on will aid this all the more.

I can't think of any other organization that should be honored with the Youth Thrive Award. First Glance is more than a building or program for teens...it is a family. A family that provides support in times of crises. A family that seeks to build one another up in love. A family that is empowering and equipping the next generation of leaders within our world. Thank you First Glance for the change you are making in Kenmore, and its surrounding communities.

Pay off their building, and have a steady operating budget. But it's not about more programs for First Glance, what makes them effective is the caring leaders. You can't buy that.

first glance is making a difference in the lives of kenmore teens. in fact, it is making such a diference in many kenmore teens that everyone some of these kids will ever interact with will be impacted. the first glance leaders and volunteers love these teens and the teens can tell. overtime, these same teens allow that same love to flow from them to others, and therefore first glance is impacting the world, one student at a time. first glance should be considered for the youth achive award.
