YOUTH ENRICHMENT STRATEGIES
August 28, 2008
I'm impressed!!! Growing up in Richmond and being in a Foster home myself, I understand first hand the importance of connecting and belonging. This non profit sends over 500 hundred youths and families to camp every year. Raising over $190,000.00 in camp scholarships annually. Giving low income youths and families the opportunity to connect with nature, people, and themselves. The impact is magnificently positive, shining new possibilities and opening their minds. The transformation of so many of the youths has been incredible. This non profit also has a program called "Peacetalk". They go into schools and give youths and adults communication tools that ables them to express, debate and resolve conflicts in a non violent, peaceful fashion. Please tell everyone you know about this organization. Look them up and please contribute. YES is making a difference!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
youths and families. Bringing them together and giving the children a new perspective on life.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The feeling I get seeing the kids come out of their place of fear and start to trust.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
generous and kind. They sincerely love their community.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make Richmond a place of peace.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
