Review for Artreach, Inc., Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

We at Mars Hill CDC work with youth from north Philadelphia (9th Lehigh Avenue and 10th and Wallace areas), ages 5 thru 13. We are open to everyone and our group is predominantly African American. Art Reach has been a wonderful partner this year providing many opportunities for our youth to experience arts and culture that they would not have otherwise. The young people had a great time this holiday season attending performances in and around Philadelphia viewing the Nutcracker, Peter Pan and Oliver. Most recently we had a great time at the orchestral performance accompanying the Wizard of Oz. Thank you Art Reach for making the arts available to the youth of the Mars Hill CDC.

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

The opportunities have been in the Philadelphia area so our participants have gotten a chance to see different parts of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.

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

energetic and very helpful in making sure that the youth enjoyed the performances.

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

expand the number of activities it was able to sponsor and more youth would have opportnities to experience arts and culture usually unavailable to them.

Ways to make it better...

more organizations servicing inner city youth knew about their program.

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

suring up their donor base.

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

In spite of the economic downturn Art Reach has continued to prvide quality cultural and arts experiences through their programs.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
