VSS is a great organization. It is doing good things for less fortunate students. The organization has admirable goals and has a plan to achieve those goals.

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

The gratitude of the high school students.

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

Not change much. I think it is well run.

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

Helping the high school students.

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

Very kind and truly wanted to help those who don't have the same resources that we have.

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

Give opportunities to many students who have both have the ability and desire to succeed but do not have the resources.

Ways to make it better...

More high school students had participated in the events.

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

Convincing the high school students to attend events and other functions that will help them.

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

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
