What Now America
January 16, 2009

I really liked the organization, for it really hits home to the people of Oakland by providing them after school activities. A study comparing the scores of children on reading and math shows that students from upper class families scored better than students gradually as more summers pass by, indicating that they spend more of their free time reading, which is where WNA comes into play.

The Great!

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

Having kids come more often to their events.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to get more volunteers.

More feedback

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

that I have great 1-1 quality time with the children, hence build strong connections with them.

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

college students that were as enthusiastic as I am.

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

save a lot of Oakland children from straying from school, and put them to 4 year universities.

Ways to make it better...

I had gone every weekend to volunteer.

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

lack of volunteers, given that it's a completely new non-profit, and still has to make its name.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I look forward in volunteering now that I am no longer a student.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008
