My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Multicultural Education and Counseling Through the Arts, Houston, TX, USA
I have been with MECA for many many years. I first went to MECA when I took my five year old to take Violin lessons with Alice Valdez. I was a volunteer and she took classes at MECA and loved it! She is now 22 but I became a Board Member and have been for about 9/10 years. MECA is a great organization and helps alot of kids! I always recommend then to lots of people....it is a great place for kids to grow and experience and find their talents and keep them off the street. THey end up going to college and alot of them come back to give back and that in itself is a wonderful experience! I am very proud to be a part of this organization and will continue to volunteer and be on the board for as long as I can! It is all a great cause!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Being able to give bk to the community and help children find their path in their future as oppose to them being in the streets with gangs, drugs, etc etc!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
WOW, the staff is incredible and alot of them work more hours than paid for. We recently had to cut hrs from 40 hrs to 20 hrs. due to low funds and some don't even recieve a check at all! But it is still a great place to be we believe in it!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Finish our restoration of our building which needs lots of work and it is all for our kids. We are very low in money and this would be a blessing for everyone at MECA. The students would have heat and air and better facility all the way around.
