Long Beach BLAST is a wonderful organization that I am familiar with and love. Although the staff is very small (7 1/2 full-time employees) BLAST manages to do many wonderful things with the little money they get. They touch many children's lives through mentoring, and they touch the lives of the mentors, too, many of whom say what started out as a simple extra credit or assignment has become an experience that they will treasure for the rest of their lives.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
seeing how many people it touches.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
committed, dedicated, and severely underpaid.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Help so many more people.
