My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Community Matters, Santa Rosa, CA, USA
Community Matters' cost effective proven programs create a fundamental shift that is so necessary in our culture: inspiring young people to stand up against violence and abusive behavior whenever they see it taking place. The organization has an innovative approach, working with alpha students from every social "clique" so that impacts of the program diffuse through the entire school population from the inside-out, that is, starting with students. The whole school climate shifts to become safer and more welcoming for all, with significantly reduced suspensions, abusive incidents, and resulting costs.
I've worked as Executive Director of an arts non-profit doing music outreach to K-12 students, and currently work extensively with another successful non-profit focused on teen leadership. I've seen the huge difference it makes to reach young people with a well-honed life-affirming message. Community Matters delivers life-changing impacts that transform students into leaders and peacemakers for the rest of their lives.
