Review for FIRST PLACE FOR YOUTH, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a participating youth in program right now. First Place really offers good services to help youth with housing, helping us to get jobs, go to college, everything. I really like my youth advocate. She is really helpful and is always there to talk to me about housing issues or anything. She is just someone I can talk to no matter what. Just last week, my youth advocate and the education/employment coordinator took me on a field trip to the local fire department after I said I was interested in becoming a firefighter. It was really cool because I got to go out on a real emergency call and talk with people that actually do the work. First Place does a LOT for the youth and I am very lucky to be part of program.

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

my youth advocate and the way that she explains things to me.

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

always nice and really helpful.

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

expand and help more people like me.

Ways to make it better...

we had more incentives.

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

following the rules ALL the time.

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

the Fairfield office are cool folks.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I am a youth in program in Solano County.
