Review for Long Beach Blast-Better Learning After School Today, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Long Beach BLAST is an amazing organization that through college student Mentoring and role modeling, it gives some of our areas toughest kids a chance to bridge the gap from the inner city to entering college, trade or technical school. Sadly so of these kids feel that they are excluded from society, but when a college student shows them that they can plan to enter college and acheive whatever they want, it can lead their lives into an entirely new direction! Once their new goals are established they see a new vision and use education at the great equalizer. What an amazing place; I am very proud to be a part of it.

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

That it changes lives.

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

Excellent.

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

Get 10,000 kids out of the inner city and into college (trade or technical school). It's the best investment I know of.

Ways to make it better...

Long Beach BLAST had a larger budget.
