Operation Understanding DC
August 4, 2009
Two of my children have been transformed by the OUDC experience. Their horizons were broadened and they came away with a better sense of self and a deeper devotion to others. They also learned a lesson not being taught well in other DC environments: you can disagree strongly with someone and still hold that person close to your heart. In addition to helping Jews and African-Americans understand each other better, the neighborhoods, economic circumstances and values these kids represent offer them all insights into others. These kids are tomorrow's leaders.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
opening worlds of ideas and relationships for my own children and others.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
meeting the extraordinary young people who are a part of it.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated, devoted and determined to making a better society.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
reach 320 kinds a year instead of 32.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
