This is a great organization that is impacting our youth to become excited about science and technology. There is great support in getting the equipment needed in a timely manner and full license is given to be as creative as you want. The end result is much better learning for the kids.

The Great!

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

Getting full support when developing the class scope and structure. Equipment and recording gear (not cheap) were provided to make it happen.

My children began taking classes at the Youth Science Center in Hacienda Heights 14 years ago. They always loved the creative and inspiring teachers and classes. They are now too old to take the classes themselves, so they volunteer to work in the classroom as assistants. We still join in on some of their fun and educational field trips. We all still love the Youth Science Center.

I have been extremely impressed by the quality of the youth experience at YSC. My company has donated $10K to them for the last 2 years, and we expect to continue with our support.

The Youth Science Center has always been a place of inspiration for myself and many other students. I went to the Youth Science Center every year starting from first grade all the way through eighth grade, and continued to volunteer all the way through my college years. Each teacher presents science material in a unique and very interesting way. Many of the lessons are taught through a hands on project that each student creates, such as a model rocket to learn about Newton's laws of motion, or making circuit boards to understand how electric circuits work. The projects are not only fun to do, but allow students of all ages to grasp the concepts involved in the project much faster than if they were simply taught by a lecture in a classroom. The entire organization is run by very kind and caring people who teach there because they absolutely love their role in inspiring young students to one day become our future engineers and leaders in the field of science.

I was first introduced to the Youth Science Program by some moms whom I had met through a Mommy and Me class. It was a godsend to find a fun and educational place to send my childen to during the summer. It's way too easy to let them sit in front of the computer not doing anything. The Youth Science Center allowed my children to be exposed to science in a fun and educational way. They were able to do things that they weren't able to do in class due to the large class sizes and lack of public school funding. Where else can a child learn to build and launch a rocket or have a hands on lesson on gemology? Eating your way through a math lesson is way more fun than staring at a bunch of numbers. How many children get to learn about the space program and have instructors who are actually knowledgeable about it? These are just a few of the things that the Youth Science Center can offer. The biggest problem like most non profits is the lack of money. Student enrollment is down as the economy struggles. If you raise fees, then it hurts the very children the program is designed to help. My wish is that they are able to get funding and support. As we all know, children are the gateway to our future. If we invest in them now, the rewards will be plentiful in the future.

My children have become much stonger in math and science. They have learned so much more than their peers have due to the varied courses available to take and it's all under one roof. They are able to answer questions that other children can't.

The Youth Science Center provides learning opportunities for children that inspries them to learn about our world through science. Our country faces a crisis with a lack of students taking on Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) realted course work. This is due in part because we are not providing relevance or stimulas to children in the K-8 grades, so they are not prepared later on. The Youth Science Center provides outstanding, creative programs that fill that gap by a staff of most passionate people.

The Great!

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

Witnessing classrooms at work and graduates that have gone on to great STEM related careers.

as the former President of the Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District, I worked hand in hand with the Board of Directors to implement a science curriculum at elementary schools in the San Gabriel Valley and can attest to the positive results.

ThThis was the third year I have worked as a teacher offering my space science classes called "I Need My Space." I have taught elementary school for 35 years and know when a program works. This one gets an A+! The support I received during the preparation and set up for my class was excellent. The facility was very comfortable and I had all the tech and supplies I needed to do my job. As I taught, I was always asked if there is anything I needed and there was plenty of volunteer staff to help. I was highly respected for what I had to offer and felt very appreciated! Best of all, the children had a wonderful time and enjoyed learning through hands on activities. I give this program my highest rating!

The Great!

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

The children who come back every year as well as word of mouth from parents for new ones.

I am so grateful for the Youth Science Center, without their dedication and hard work to provide classes that are not only educational but FUN! My kids have learned so much and they were bummed when the classes ended. My four year old, Sawyer, told me that lizards can grow back their tails and that cats eat them. I want my kids to learn and know things that I can't provide ( I don't know anything about rockets) my daughter, Saylor got so much out of her Rocketeer class. Every mom I know who have brought their children here have always walked away saying they love the Youth Science Center. If I was wealthy, I would be one of the biggest donors to YSC. Ron and Judy and all the volunteers and the teachers are so great!!! Again, I say, I am so thankful for them.

The Great!

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

My kids learned about art, science, technology, sharing, discussing things that they learned and an exposure to things that I cannot provide. I am not an insect person, and a reptile mom and my son took a class where they learned about these things.

I would make it bigger and better, more funding, more classes. More great teachers, more students.

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

I love very aspect about the Youth Science Center. They have hard working staff, I hate to sound so 80's but they have awesome teachers. My children learn in a safe, positive, learning environment that is also so much FUN!

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

Wonderful, dedicated, hard working and genuine individuals that love what they do. The teachers that teach these classes have a true love for the subject they teach. The classes are hands on and it's such a great place. I love it! I love them!

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

be one of the best science centers for children. It truly is a wonderful place and I know moms that joined this year by bringing their children will return next year. I think the only time people leave is because their children are too old for the classes

Ways to make it better...

I had more money to provide more classes for my children. My children get so much out of the classes. My children are exposed to subjects that I would love to teach them about but are unable to.

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

Funding, I think people are not aware of the Youth Science Center and so because of that there is lack of funding.

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

To hear my children talk about things that they have learned that stay with them because the class was so much fun makes me so much more appreciative of the wonderful teachers and staff at YSC for their hard work. I love Youth Science Center!
