Review for INSPIRING THOUGHTFUL STUDENTS BY TAKING INITIATIVE TO MOTIVATE EXCELLENCE, Centreville, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

IT’S TIME is an organization whose mission is extremely important. I champion its efforts whole heartily. Its vision of developing inner city youngster who through their mastering of communications skills, understanding of financial instruments and career guidance will become leaders within their communities requires unbelievable commitment, resourcefulness and skill. Many inner city schools are faced with daunting situations that makes maintaining quality education quite a challenge. Organizations like IT’S TIME which focuses on the basic underpinnings of what it takes to make our young people confident, inquisitive, capable and competitive makes that effort more manageable. The professionalism and focus which emanates from its operation and the response and enthusiasm of its student is quite remarkable. The role of IT’S TIME within the Washington DC community is potentially one of the most significant adjunct to the educational agenda being promulgated.

Review for INSPIRING THOUGHTFUL STUDENTS BY TAKING INITIATIVE TO MOTIVATE EXCELLENCE, Centreville, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Upon my visit I found IT’S TIME to be a wonderful, creative, community based program. Its students appeared curious, informed, self assured and motivated. The atmosphere permeated the vibrant, committed attitude of young professionals who are providing an enrichment initiative to middle school youngsters that will provide them tools to achieve scholastic excellence, financial acuity, and to explore career options. The syllabus IT’S TIME follows, public speaking, financial literacy and power lunch speaker provides assets that I believe are essential in the nurturing of our young people toward scholarly excellence, economic viability, strong leadership skills and civic responsibility. I think the three format program offered is an important addition to the community and hope with support and encouragement will find the impetus to expand in its outreach. IT’S TIME is an important addition to the DC educational system and unquestionably, has a bright future.

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

The participation and enthusiam of the yougsters.

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

They were engaging, determined and knowledgeable

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

It could expand its outreach and become a statewide if not national organization

Ways to make it better...

If there were a larger student enrollment and if computer availability for each student were possibile.

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

Making the community aware of the marvelous service they are providing

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

IT'S TIME provides a service that is essential. If our yougsters are to be given the tools and skills necessary to be competive and successful within the global community, they could not be exposed to a better program.
