INNER-CITY COMPUTER STARS FOUNDATION
January 25, 2010

I've met dozens of I.C.Stars alumni and I am so impressed with who they are and what they've accomplished! I.C.Stars alumni have proven their ambition and their willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done! What organization can do without people like these? This is a great organization to support and a great group of people to hire!

The Great!

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

using the Technology Leaders Association Web site. It is well supported, well designed and provides great functionality - obviously with very low cost of ownership. They clearly selected a great platform for the site - and they're very responsive.

Ways to make it better...

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

It hurs my heart to hear that 400 candidates apply for only 10 or 11 positions in each cycle. What can we do to get more people into programs like this?

More feedback

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

The benefits alumni gain from their program are countless and immediately obvious. Rarely do you see such immediate results from such a small donation of your time or expertise.

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

Amazing, generous, selfless, talented, kind, funny, strong, ...

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

Accept more candidates; branch out to more cities; literally save more lives. This organization provides a sustainable life altering career change to inner city youth at risk.

Ways to make it better...

I could have placed every single one of the folks I've met in a position. They are just wonderful people.

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

I think they probably could use more financial support and more job placement opportunities.

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

This organization does the most effective job I've ever seen in erasing poverty in the inner city. I.C. Stars alumni experience on average a 240% increase in annual income when they get thier first job in the tech sector.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
