Review for Artist Mentorship Program, portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Absolultely impressive and stunning. I learned about AMP through a co-worker when I was struggling to find funds to help two of my students gain access to an art program that was extremely cost-prohibitive. AMP rallied behind the cause and together we raised over $5000 to pay their tuition, room and board for the summer, they now have art portfolios that they have taken to college review days - and the colleges are liking what they see and offering them money. AMP was a HUGE stepping stone in the lives of these two young men, a huge stepping stone toward a future that may not otherwise have materialized. Support the magic that AMP produces for the lives of at-risk and homeless youth - I support them fully!!

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

Their heart, their drive, and their professionalism.

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

Visionary, passionate, dedicated, driven!

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

Fill in the cracks where our kids keep falling - they fill a vital need in the gap that keeps widening with the demise of our school system - if they had 10 million bucks they would revolutionize with love, music and art!

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to continue participating!

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

A solid and stable access to capital so that they're mission can be strongly implemented.
