Review for Create Now, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was involved with Create Now for many years and the work they do in really reaching the most troubled youth is not only amazing but necessary. I have worked with many children's non-profits and I have never seen anyone as dedicated or passionate about helping the most vulnerable youth as Jill. The arts programs - whether its art, music, performing arts, or creative writing - has transformed these kids - I've seen it first hands. Kids on drugs, in jail, homeless, you name it, have turned their lives around because of Create Now!

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

many ways. I've personally met many of the youth who told me they were given a second chance through Create Now. Who felt pride for the first time in their lives when their art work was displayed or they got to sing in front of a group of their peers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more funding so they could help more kids. There are thousands upon thousands of youth who need a creative outlet as a way to work through their challenges - the work that Create Now is doing is just a drop in the bucket of what they could do and the amount of kids they could impact.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I was a volunteer and consultant with the organization.
