Sasha Bruce Youthwork, Inc.
November 30, 2010
I have learned so much about working with teenagers and using therapeutic methods to help them understand themselves and the world around them better. At Sasha Bruce, I've learned to help those seeking help understand their own competencies; it's incredible how few people believe they are enough. Through what I've learned in my work with the Youth-Led program, I have become such a well rounded person, and I have had the opportunity to learn about some incredible kids in Anacostia that most of the world doesn't care to look at.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the Youth-Led program at Ballou Senior High School, and seeing the difference in our kids that now have access to college prep, self-empowerment, and watching them discover their own self-worth.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
have less bureaucracy.
Volunteer & I lead a Rite of Passage group that helps empower young women, help facilitate the Community Organizing group that helps youth take control of their communities and issues they are passionate about, and I provide administrative assistance to the Youth-Led.
