Operation Understanding DC
February 2, 2011
OUDC has served our school incredibly well. Each year their staff and youth participants lead workshops on Diversity in our school and prompt important conversations between and among our students. Our student participants rave about their experience in this program and develop maturity, sensivity, awareness and strength in leadership that will serve them in all relationships and experiences their life time through. Even our staff has participated in development training with OUDC's support and assistance. I feel very fortunate to benefit from the very large greatness of this relatively small program in so many ways.
