Review for INNER-CITY COMPUTER STARS FOUNDATION, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

they seem more like family than what I actually have in many ways.

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Client Served & I currently volunteer with them, for them, and elsewhere because of them.
