Through my personal communicative experience and skills of being a public servant for over 50 years in my community through radio/TV communications, I have witnessed the extroadinary accomplishments of the Higher Learning Network, NFP helping and influencing Youth, Adults and all of the community to aspiring roles of leadership within themselves as well as others of their peers. I strongly suggest and vote for this orgainization's right to funds to help them further the message of education, which is the road to Freedom for anyone who desires and seeks this from the Higher Learning Network, NFP...

I volunteered this past winter with the youth media class where the kids produced a tv show for their friends, and it was great!

Higher Learning Network has been a staunch supporter of our mission to save hundreds of youth in the Roseland community. Our annual event "Feed A Teen" Thanksgiving Day Dinner feeds of hundreds of teenagers and their families each year, and High Learning Network is there every year to help make it a success. Higher Learning Network has also donated valuable services to Kids Off The Block such as videos of the event, broadcasting our event for eight straight weeks, all pro bono. We are so grateful to Ms. Zelda Robinson and Tony Hughes to their unwaivering support.

As a working professional I undertand the importance of allowing today's youth see someone who looks like them, come from the same neighborhoods they came from. I show up to show them that there are people they don't know in this world, that care about them. It's been more rewarding to me than I ever thought. I thought I was attending events to share my expertise, but I learned so much more than I can ever give back to them in return. What a blessing to be a part of this organization's volunteer staff!

The Great!

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

My areas of need, including learning to be more patient with children, which makes me more patient with myself.

Ways to make it better...

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

Definitely find someone to share the load with them because dealing with kids require a lot of energy and I sometimes see how tired Ms. Robinson is, but she keeps moving forward anyway, she even showed up sick once, but that didn't stop her from traini

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

Everything from start to finish. I had no idea I'd have so much fun with kids. These kids really bring out the best in me.

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

Very supportive.

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

Certainly make a greater impact on today's youth by hiring more instructors. getting the transportation and other HD equipment they need. Even a little more to feed the volunteers pizza, etc.! LOL

Ways to make it better...

There was more funding for this organization because I see the things they do and how the funding would allow them to reach a larger segment of the population.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Transportation to get these kids from areas that lack transportation or have funds to get their via CTA.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The work this organization is crucial to the development of not only youth, but the community at large.

I met Zelda Robinson some 12 years ago and I can say that she is not only a dynamic public speaker,radio host, and author, but she is also someone who cares deeply about people. The Higher Learning Network does marvelous work, offering a little bit of everything for most everyone. If you, or someone you know is in need of a grant, directions on getting published, or a multiplicity of other needs, this is the place to go! This woman has not only got it together, she has helped countless others do the same. Sincerely, (uncle) Bob Starshak
