Review for Youth Advocates Inc, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I served as an AmeriCorps member for 2 years, and I really got a lot out of it. I was able to experience different cultures and lifestyles than the one I grew up with. I met a lot of interesting individuals and I feel that I made difference in at least one person life through my volunteer work. Youth Advocates is a very unique place with many unique people such breakdancers (which I had never been exposed to before this), poets, grafitti artists, etc. I like how these kids, who might get judged by their communities, have a place to come and hang out that's positive instead being found causing trouble in the streets. Youth Advocates does good work and is willing to help an individual in any way they can.

Role:  Volunteer & Tutor/Mentor.
