Review for Arts & Scraps, Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Arts & Scraps is constantly adapting and developing new programs to better serve the Detroit area. Their ability to move quickly, focusing staff and volunteer time and resources to a given need has allowed them to create unique programs and much needed services. For example, they saw that it was quite difficult for schools to arrange field trips to the Arts & Scraps location. In response they launched the 'Scrap Mobile' a mobile Arts & Scraps that can travel TO the schools, bringing creative material and workshops to the schools themselves.

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

the enthusiasm of the staff and the empowerment they give to the volunteers to make the organisation work better.
