Youth Making a Difference
September 2, 2009

I've worked about three times a month with YMAD and have enjoyed the experiences I've had with this organization. I've learned to work harder than I ever have with help from my leaders and teammates. They teach by helping one accomplish feats that said person thought they could never accomplish. This is a fantastic organization, however there are several ways in which I feel it could be approved. The beginning of the program was extensively impressive, but as time when on I noticed a lull in action and motivation from both the staff and my peers. Also, I most motivation negative. For example, our leaders may try motivate us through guilt. However affective this tactic is I believe that positive reinforcement would be far more encouraging. That being said, I have been most impressed with Youth Making a Difference, and my assumption is that the organization will continue to grow and mature into a highly influential and reputable group.

I've enjoyed learning work ethic most from this nonprofit organization. The leaders have helped encourage me and taught me that I can conquer a daunting task even if I think it's beyond my reach.

My experience with YMAD could have been enhanced greatly if the staff was more dedicated during the summer months.
