Review for KNOWLEDGE-FIRST, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From its' inception, Knowledge-First has never wavered from its' core beliefs and reason for being: All children can learn and deserve to be culturally enriched regardles of thier position in life. Knowledge-First's founder, James Allen, took his experiences as a life-long educator, passion to make a difference, and his own capital to bring Knowledge-First to fruition. Through Knowledge-First's wholistic approach, I have seen individuals that the public school system labeled as discipline problems and learning-challenged evolve into model students. Kudos to this organization for making and difference in our children's lives and, ultimately, everyone's future.

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

the founder, James Allen, is adamant about surrounding himself with people who genuinely see the need for enriching the lives of our youth with the knowledge that they are our future leaders.

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

enthusiastic, focused, and saw the vision/

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

transform so many more young lives.

Ways to make it better...

the organization had more funding to extend more of its services to young girls.

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

getting the funding to continue to carry out the vision.
