Review for AMERICAN INDIAN ASSOCIATION OF ILLINOIS, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so proud of the American Indian Association of Illinois. With very little funding, they have graduated more American Indian college students than any other college or university in Illinois. They also started the first American Indian Museum in Chicago, and continue the work of the oldest American Indian Dance group in Illinois-the Black Hawk Performance Company. They are truly terrific!

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

Making sure that American Indian students feel welcomed and supported. All students receive one on one advising,counseling,tutoring,and any assistance they might need to complete college. This is all done with a respect for the tribal cultures they come from.

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

Help them gain more funding. With more money, they could help more American Indians. This is the best American Indian nonprofit and the most cost effective in the midwest.

Role:  Volunteer & I tutored students and helped with office work.
