After School Arts Program, Inc.
October 3, 2013

I worked with the Counselors in Training at the ASAP Summer Camp to help them with personal presentation skills. This gave me a chance to watch the workings for the camp as a "fly on the wall." What most impressed me about the staff at the camp was the commitment to making the program the best it could be for this specific group of kids. If some approach had been a success previous summers, but somehow wasn't reaching one camper this year, the staff sat down that day and discussed what kind of pivot was necessary to give that camper the best possible experience. That ability to see each camper as an individual, deserving of personal attention, transformed the campers; for some of them, it was perhaps the most encouragement they had ever received. They learned about the making of art, and the end results were impressive, but even more impressive was how the campers learned that they are individuals who matter because of who they are, not just what they do, and therefore they can believe in themselves and go make a difference.

Ways to make it better...

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

Raise more money to help the staff find students to participate in their programs who might not be hearing about them through the current marketing channels.
