YOUTH CORP OF AMERICA INC
April 19, 2010

I have been working with At-Risk youth for over 20 years. I've been working directly with TYCoA since it's inception.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working directly with the youth TYCoA has been helping.Seeing the immediate results from mentoring a young person who has previously never had exposure to positive roll modeling is an invaluable and unforgettable experience.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find more resources for TYCoA to run more programs.

More feedback

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

how TYCoA directly effects not only the youths in the program but the residual effects on the families and community (neighborhoods).

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

always top notch in their respective fields. There are so many good people out there doing important work for their community.

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

at a grass-roots level, positively effect so many low-income neighborhoods the long term outcomes would be generational. I sincerely believe this to be true.

Ways to make it better...

we had more resources (i.e. funding) to work with.

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

financial support and exposure to other organizations and the community.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009
