Review for YOUTH SCIENCE CENTER, Hacienda Heights, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have only great things to say about the Youth Science Center. I am currently a student studying electrical engineering and business at the University of Pennsylvania, but my ties with the YSC go back to 3rd grade, when I was first enrolled in summer classes there. I was exposed to novel scientific concepts and hands-on activities that, truth be told, far exceeded the kinds of activities that I saw at school I attended. I later served the YSC as a volunteer and network administrator, and from that standpoint the experiences I had working for and with them were incredibly valuable. It is my sincere conviction that my experiences with the YSC positively influenced me in my younger years, and I can directly credit the YSC for inspiring me to pursue a career in engineering and design.

Review for YOUTH SCIENCE CENTER, Hacienda Heights, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having been associated with the Youth Science Center for over 8 years (first as a student, then as a volunteer), I think I can honestly say that what they do can really inspire and help children who, otherwise, would have limited exposure to the world of science and technology. The knowledge I gained from learning there and later volunteering there have proved invaluable.

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

the friendliness of the people and their goal.

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

friendly, hardworking, and dedicated.

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

do many great things - it could change the future for hundreds, maybe even thousands of kids.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Volunteer & I ran errands, maintained the computer network, and helped teachers.
