Review for INTERACTIVE DRAMA FOR EDUCATION AND AWARENESS IN THE SCHOOLS INC, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Cleary School for the Deaf Secondary Program has had a five year relationship with I.D.E.A.S.. Even with funds being tight, we found I.D.E.A.S. to provide our students with rich socio-dynamic experiences. Sudents could name their own concerns and create plays or scenes to illustrate problems, solutions or waysa of working through the problem. Visiting artists are all well-qualified to draw the best out of students, even including wide ranges of ability within the group.

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

Students are more aware of how to solve their issues, and where/how to seek help. Visiting artists bring sim,ilar backgrounds and life-isuies to their work witrh students, and have creative approaches to drawing out student responses.

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

Fantastic! Qualified! Energetic! Creative! Resourceful!

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

make I.D.E.A.S. a permanent part of our daily program.

Ways to make it better...

we had more time with I.D.E.A.S..

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
