Review for Youthbuild Usa, Inc., Somerville, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a supporter and now a Friend of YouthBuild for many years. I have heard the young people express the importance of YouthBuild in their lives. And I am an educator who worries about the future of the young people who pass through my classroom. We cannot waste the lives of so many. YouthBuild gives a second chance to those whom our system has failed. The young people who have the chance to join a YouthBuild project are given what they meed in tough love and support. They grow and build their confidence to become the poeple they can be and whom their community needs. this project tells me that there is hope. We must continue to invest in these young people. And expand the opportunity to the many of thousands who cannot yet be included.

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

It gives me hope that these young people can find a path out of despair and into a hopeful future.

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

Everyone I have met is tyotally committed to the young people and thier future.

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

There is no limit to the usefulness of funding this oganization. They have proved that they will make miracles happen with the funds they receive.

Ways to make it better...

I am onlu positive about my connection with YouthBuild.

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

How to get the awareness of the organization and its model to enough people to fund the full number of young people who need YouthBuild.

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

If only we were not failing so many of our youth we would not need YouthBuild. But we have so many to date that the work is huge and must expand to meet the need.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Volunteer & I participate every other in a group who aim to expand the resources for YouthBuild to serve the many youth who are not yet able to be in programs for want of funds.
