INNER-CITY COMPUTER STARS FOUNDATION
January 21, 2010

icstars drastically changes peoples lives. From striving to survive to thriving in the modern world. Wish there were more programs like this in other areas. I have always had issues with government funding going towards welfare like programs... Imagine if it all went to programs like icstars (which isn't government funded at all if I am correct)...this is entirely possible, payment while you need it, and a career once you leave. Can't beat it. I only wish that it went beyond the technology focus so I could get more people involved.

The Great!

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

my professional, and my personal life as well.

Ways to make it better...

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

Seperate the Community and Technology tracks. Keep the curriculum as of now for the tech part, and do something similar on the community side, but include more on starting a nonprofit, legal things, etc...

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

Family.

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

Change the city.

Ways to make it better...

I was less of an oddball.

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

the fact it seems too good to be true.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I think they see things in us the rest of us ignore.
