Summer Search
August 2, 2008

Actually, the star rating is a 4.5, only because it's not easy! I've learned and grown a lot since being a Summer Searcher. I was a sophomore in high school. Things sucked and I believed that one day they would get better but I didn't know how that was going to happen. To make a long story short, Summer Search has been one of my many pittstops on the road to healing and happiness.

The Great!

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

how I've been able to discover my voice in a way that suits me best.

Ways to make it better...

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

get the parents more involved so that the nurturing I and fellow Summer Searchers received could continue in different aspects of life.

More feedback

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

the consistency. There are some new faces as well, but those familiar faces really help me stay connected.

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

motivators, compassionate, welcoming.

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

make itself known to more people and continue to help others.

Ways to make it better...

I'd had a stronger connection with my counselor. Removing that counselor to client lens would have been helpful for us.

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

continuing to grow so that it can do more and support others.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
