ACT THREE THE ENSEMBLE OF ESTHETIC VALUE
September 28, 2009

I have been a board member of Act Three for the past fifteen years. During that time the organization has, since moving to Michigan, worked with youth in Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck, Michigan. The fucus of the programs has been educational and preparing youth to further their education by studing, maintaing B or above averages and giving back to their community by helping with clean-up days and other activity. Act Three has focused on theatrical programs and presented skits, ten to fifteen minutes in length, on such topics as Conflick Resolution, the importance of doing positive things, drive-bys hootings, why drugs and alcohol should not be used, being responsible, obeying parents and other authority as well as being role models for other children. In addition Act Three has published an annual Youth, Young Adult Resource Guide, an annual Youth Jamboree which focues on four areas of sports and at least one play per year. The concept is that theaterics help youth become more productive citizens. Act Three has received awards from the state senitor and the representative in its area, Budco, Prevention Network and individuals.

The Great!

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

working with youth through the programs it presents. Currently Act Three is involved with its Upward Bound Program that concentrates on preparing youth for higher education. Act Three is very proud of the fact that have graduated and gone on tio college

Ways to make it better...

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

double down on the kind of programs it has and continue to present

More feedback

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

the oppertunity to help shape the lives of so many young girls and boys, my son included who is currently a member of the United States Military.

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

from different walks of life but all made children welfare their number one priority.

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

not only expand its operations but also assist other organizations who are struggling with resources.

Ways to make it better...

Act Three's funding was higher because thatw opuld allow the organization to do more needed programs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the lack of adequate funding and amn eigh to ten passenger vehicle to transport youth to different locations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Act Three is one of many non profit organizations in the metro Detroit area who are doin g an excellent job.
