PANZOU PROJECT INC
January 26, 2011
The level of the commitment of its staff and leadership to the young folks they work with is unparalleled. They are 100% across the board in demonstrating their integrity, competence and dedication to their mission. PAN ZOU is on of the few organizations I know of (actually, the only one I know of) capable of providing meaningful community crisis intervention and violence prevention and effective individual intervention in the lives of the young people they serve. Because PAN ZOU has paid its dues, it has earned the all important trust and respect of the people it serves. That is why PAN ZOU is uniquely situated to provide alternative visions of a gang and violence free future for critically "at risk" Haitian-American and immigrant youth that they can believe. You can tell that the organization is powered largely with hope, faith and love....that’s the only way to explain the fantastic record of accomplishment PAN ZOU has achieved with the limited but committed resource assistance they’ve been able to amass thus far. They deserve as much support as is available....and more.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Watching them develop young entreprenures and work with law enforcement to diffuse potentially violent, life threating situations
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make sure they had a better physical plant for their offices and activites and more seed money for their 'young entreprenure' talent development efforts.
Advisor & I worked with PAN ZOU as an advisor of sorts and was involved as an ex-officio board member at its formation. I am still a huge fan as a member of the community. .
