CENTER FOR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT INC
September 19, 2011

I am 33 now, but I still remember my days with the Center For Leadership Development or better known as CLD. CLD taught me so much as a young African-American, about etiquitte, the importance of being on time, interviewing skills, college admissions, what to expect in college, responsiblity for self, maturity, conflict resolution...should I go on. Its mentors are leaders in the community that can relate well with the students they work with. They have such a myraid of programs, as a former participant and now a parent, I can't wait to get my child into their programs.
With so many schools that have limited counseling for students, this program fills the holes found in our public schools.

The Great!

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

highschool as a college bound high school with little direction.

Ways to make it better...

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

Create a message board for parents so rideshare could be implemented!!

MY ROLE:
Client Served & participant and a parent who will be sending their child.

Art With A Heart
September 19, 2011

My daughter's first experience with Art With the Heart was when she was leaving kindergarten for first grade in her Catholic School summer program. She loved the oppurtunity to express herself and to learn more about art even in her young age. She has currently been a part of Art with the Heart for the last 3 years and it has been such an important part of her life. She is shy, yet very smart and expressive. The Art with the Heart classes allows her to learn about her feelings and how to express them through art.
As a parent, Art with the Heart is great because its first and most importantly AFFORDABLE, then it is great because it teaches my daughter different forms of Art, including drawing, painting, 3-D models, ect. In addition, they had a course at our local art museum which allowed the kids the oppurtunity to see other artists and learn about them first hand. The teachers are patient, kind and really enjoy helping the kids.

With art programs being cut, Art With the Heart is an exceptionally strong program for young children to develop their artistic and expressive side no matter their skill level.

Watching my daughters growth and appreciation in art. This program has provided her with an emotional "out" through art.
