My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Future Leaders Institute, Oakland, CA, USA
I was attracted to this organization because in my youth it was making the transition from "helped" to "helper" that truly allowed me to gain confidence in myself for the first time. I had had scholastic success before that, but never felt valuable despite that. Being able to make a difference in the lives of others was a crucial part of growing up and coming into my own. I love that Future Leaders Institute has developed a carefully crafted, tested and veritably effective to help scores of young people do something similar, guiding each to find their own way of making a contribution and then helping them do so. There are many great youth programs out there making a difference in the lives of young people. This one is unique in how it develops people who will make a difference in the lives of still more youths themselves with the projects and programs they also create.
