I have worked with the Board and staff of PEN for the last several years. What stands out to me is the clarity and purity of their dedication. I seldom see a not-for-profit so focused to simply helping their client population. I have worked with the Board in strategic planning, board governance, and project management. I have volunteered in the SAFE program. Everywhere in the organization I find people of heart and intelligence. PEN grew up attending to the needs of LD kids in San Francisco, but it's clear to me that they will eventually shape the national conversation around learning differences. They have the secret sauce for connecting parents, kids, teachers, and professionals; the momentum of their work will be unstoppable.
