Reviews for Novato Youth Center

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Novato Youth Center Board member for 9 years, serving as Board President for 5 of those years. It is an amazing agency with a diverse group of services, all related to youth and supporting their journey to become successful adults. We touch their lives as we teach, guide, care, and counsel. We offer an array of programs to meet youth at their stage in life: child development, counseling, adolescent health & wellness, athletic programs, and collaborate to offer community-based prevention programs. We are proud of our long-standing partnership with the Novato Unified School District that enables us to co-serve services in an effective and efficient way on school campuses and throughout the community. All our services are delivered by highly qualified and educated staff. I am proud to be a part of the Center as we celebrate 36 years of service to the community.

I have just completed 12 years on the Board of Directors of this incredible organization. I have been involved with other organizations, but NYC has amazing staff, leadership, and a very productive Board. Every time I entered the building I was aware of sounds coming from happy children, whether at play, doing art projects, learning, or playing sports. The outreach to Novato schools, couseling, tutoring, health care were all programs that the organization provides. I will miss my time on the Board, but I will always be involved with this amazing organization Larry Aronson. Former Board Member & President.

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

First hand involvement for 12 years. In 2009 we were the most honored nonprofit in Marin County. Very impressive considering their are over 1500 nonprofits.
