Review from Guidestar
April 7, 2011

Kate Corwin, Founder and President has done an outstanding job of bringing her business expertise and entrepreneurial vision to Green Works. Green Works has grown and thrived in a very difficult economic period through Kate's leadership, partner/funder development, and her consistent physical energy and presence. Green Works has done a terrific service to the Kansas City community by being an integral part in turning around the lives of some of Kansas City's most "at risk" youth by providing them guidance, structure, encouragement, education, and skills they can put to work as they mature into positive, confident, and optimistic adults. Kate has personally invested considerable extra time and effort to ensure the programs offered provide significant learning and hands-on experience for the students. The only issues that I have witnessed relate directly to having enough funds, materials and volunteers to assist Kate in implementing programs. The students often need rides, may not have gloves - necessary for working outside in the fall, etc.

I also was able to play a small role in updates of the Green Works website.

Ways to make it better...

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

Ensure the board members are actively seeking partners and funders for Green Works. Each board member would view this as a key responsibility.
