My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Creative Connections, Inc., Norwalk, CT, USA
My history with Creative Connections In the middle of 2002, I’ve participated for the first time in the Creative Connections’s program with the children of a shelter (Meu Guri – SÃ£o Paulo/Brazil). This innovation, besides contemplating a rich pedagogic proposal of education through the art, also provided the increase of the self-esteem and the promotion of the family and cultural values, that are so important in a psicossocial reinsert process. The job was developed with dedication, excitement and affection, once that for the sheltered children, the art and education became an educational allied and a partner-affectionate protection. After all, we were informed that we were awardee for the creativity of the sent works. Since then, the news dispersed, parents, children, adolescents, collaborators and employees acquired a new perception of the artistic works’s importance. Now we developed this partnership’s (Creative Connections) with public school students’. Nowadays, that sheltered adolescents group are adult, they work, and all of them remind of Creative Connections with a lot of thank. “All that participate in Creative Connections are winners, but in a shelter of careless children this kind of job makes all the difference.” PS: I cannot forget about the teachers, in my case besides learning constantly, since the beginning of the partnership, I will developing a doctorate project with Creative Connections (study of case) that is in phase of project development and of financing. Thank you very much, Luiz Pereira de Souza Brazil SP
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the attention of the art link team with the foreing teachers.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
reach more children and volunteer of their mission
Ways to make it better...
I studied (by internet) with my partners the subject of works.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
languages and the help (teoric) the foreing teachers in theirs evolution of graduate.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I love Creative Connections and I had leaned a lot with this art experience.
