Last summer, I helped with the Summer Camp program. Students enrolled in this program were given a rich variety of experiences, including field trips. The arts & crafts encouraged the children to create and design their own projects. Wonderful environment for children! Highly recommended!

As a volunteer with Knowledge- First Empowerment Center, I have personally observed the care and concern that is given to each individual who enters the facility. Knowledge-First helps provide educaltional, cultural and artistic opportunities and experiences to individuals. While volunteering on several occasions, many clients have stated that the staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable and resourceful. Very positive asset in the community.

offering me an opportunity to volunteer as well as collaborate with the facility on several community projects.

Rennovate/upgrade the building space.

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

that the services offered can benefit the entire community; adolescents and adults.

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

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

touch many more lives in a positive way.

Ways to make it better...

we had more supporters

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

The staff and volunteers are diligent, dedicated, and encouraging towards all. They have a heart-felt desire to see our youth excel and acheive while reaching their maximum potential.

Knowlege-First is the only organization of it's kind to my knowledge that offers practically everything I need at little or no cost. I have learned computers, I studied some real estate and have had the most fantastic time at the social events they have sponsored. It is a place where everyone so far has felt welcomed. They have an amazing array of services and I only hope that they receive the financial support they need to continue the good work they are doing for this community. Also the dance classes they hold for adults is fantastic. It helps to give the couch potatoes some much needed exercise and according to some of the women involved, it brings new spark in their relationships.

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

learning the benefits of giving to young and/or old without always expecting something in return. I can personally say my life has been enriched through this organization

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

expand it to facilitate the number of people affected by its presence in the community.

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

my ability to express myself creatively. They allow each person to express themselves and instead of attempting to control the person, they continue to provide ways of assisting the person to reach their goals.

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

nice.

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

change the world. I believe this is one organization that would take the money and actually put it to great use because they understand their role in the community as servants.

Ways to make it better...

I could actually work for them and get paid at the same time. To work in a learning environment is such a joy to me.

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

lack of sufficient funding to complete it's mission.

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