THE GREENHOUSE
September 19, 2010

The GreenHouse is a great organization that provides a safe and positive environment for children in an inner-city community. Students attend programs after school where they spend time with caring adults who help them develop their academic abilities in math, reading, and receive help with their homework. The GreenHouse provides students with resources (e.g. internet, art and school supplies, etc) that they may not have access to otherwise due financial constraints of the families. The GreenHouse is a safe-haven in the community, and is well-liked by both youth and parents.

The Great!

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

Children make improvements in their academics because they receive one-on-one attention. They work on math, reading, and homework. Students who may not fully understand topics in class can receive help/clarification. Students who excel can be challenged.

More feedback

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

working with the wonderful children and teens!

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

kind, caring, fun, giving, and compassionate.

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

build a new building to help more children and families. A bigger facility would allow programs to happen concurrently and more frequently, so youth could receive have a safe place to go every day after school, rather than just two or three days per week.
