My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Community Youth Services, Olympia, WA, USA
I was involved with community youth services as a teen and was very appreciative off what they did for me. I was about of the housing program they provided to me as a teen mom. I completed training and classes that were very helpful to my sucess and they supported me in making good choices in life. I now have been sober for almost ten years!! The only thing I have to say that was very disappointing was that i tried to get involved with CYS as an adult and volunteer many different times and was denied to do so. I have no criminal history, or conflict of doing so. Wasn't even given the chance to fill out a form. :-(
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Completely changed my life!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Involve the community as much as possible.
missamazing: First of all, heartfelt congrats on all the good changes you have made in your life! Hearing that CYS helped means so much. Secondly, we are sorry you hit snags when trying to volunteer. We are updating our volunteer process and hope to have updated forms available through our website, www.communityyouthservices.org, by mid-June. Should you still have trouble, please contact me directly, firstname.lastname@example.org. We so appreciate those who want to volunteer!
