Organization for Youth Empowerment
June 13, 2011
Working with OYE showed me that in a short time you can help change lives and that there are people in the world who are "paying it forward" and working to connect our global community. The staff was great, the mission was clear, and the experience was unlike any other. Every teen, every college student around the world should take the time out to empower these exceptional teens working through inconveniences in the name of progress!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching the first class of OYE grow up to be the current staff members, and watching my own students connect to the experiences of children living in the "third world" take opportunities/ and nurture relationships that they take for granted,
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand its reach to other Latin American nations.
Volunteer & I helped raise funds for the organization, and visited their headquarters in Honduras.
