I am so happy to support this organization. The work they are doing with incarcerated, at-risk and exploited teen girls is innovative. They are experienced in gender- responsive programming that continually show results.

Great work by a great group of people. It's amazing the difference one caring adult makes in a child's life. It changes the course of their life forever.

It's easy to support this organization. They are successful working with a population of incarcerated and at-risk girls that are largely ignored. They work from their hearts! Society pays an estimated $1.7 million for each youth who drops out of school and becomes involved in a life of crime and drug abuse. The cost of one year of incarceration ~ $190,000 alone! This work just makes good sense.

The Art of Yoga Project is a very effective program helping incarcerated teen girls heal from physical and lifestyle abuse. It is an outstanding project. We will continue to support it, because of its growing success evident through the girl’s behavioral change.

The Art of Yoga Project is an amazing program that helps troubled teen girls. It is comprised of a group of strong and caring women helping incarcerated teen girls. Although these girls have made some poor choices they are caught in a cycle of victimization. The Art of Yoga Project works with them to create a better self image and gives them tools to help change their life. It is very inspiring!

The Great!

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

many ways! Not only do they deliver the program in three counties in Northern CA but they run amazing events in the community together at local yoga studios to help raise funds to support their work!

I have been contributing increasingly more to this group for each of the past three years, and watching them grow as individuals and as an organization. They have an amazing combination of brains, heart and tenacity. ANy one of those is of course precious. But it's hard to imagine another group having the degree of all three that makes The Art of Yoga Project so unique, and indeed successful at their mission.

The Great!

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

the incredible feedback they receive from the judges and other officials involved with their work.

Ways to make it better...

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

not do as good of a job as the existing team is.

More feedback...

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

The tremendous heart, commitment and strength they bring to their work.

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

Professional, dedicated, strong, purposeful, resolute.

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

Teach many more young women how to take control of their own lives, their own future, and make it happen from the inside out rather than the outside in.

Ways to make it better...

N/A

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

growth. they have a unique and successful formula for helping at-risk young women take control of their lives. the challenge, and funding will help, is how to deliver that successful formula to more communities.

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

you have to meet Mary Lynn Fitton to truly understand the strength from which The Art of Yoga Project springs. She's a brilliant example of the new generation of social entrepreneurs.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?

As a former mayor of Palo Alto, I became aware of this outstanding project and its early success in Oregon and now the Bay Area. Founder and director Mary Lynn Fitton has the personal dedication and commitment that is so essential to a non-profit. As a trustee of a foundation that has donated to The Art of Yoga, I have continued to be impressed with the quality of their efforts and the responses received from the participants, the court system, and community leaders. This is a winner! Jim Burch Palo Alto
