Review for Christian Latino Association Of Music And The Arts Inc, Simi Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CLAMA is a non profit organization that has already helped over 350 youth who are at-risk or adjudicated. Project RYTMO (Reaching Youth Through Music Opportunities) is one of the programs under CLAMA that utilizes music, technology and the arts to help foster, homeless and troubled youth in the Orange County area. For more info: www.rytmo.org

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

Working with homeless, foster and troubled teens who demonstrate artistic potential.Seeing how youth can change into productive citizens when given positive outlets and inspiration!-

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

Highly professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff!

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

Expand it's programs to other cities around the U.S, and help more youth who are in need. I would purchase more computers and instruments so that youth could have access to them. Finally, I would use the funds to support youth and their families in need

Ways to make it better...

None-I have the greatest honor of helping and developing this organization!

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

Fundraising-private donors and sponsors

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

CLAMA/Project RYTMO is using music and the arts to reach teens that would NEVER have an opportunity to learn music technology and find jobs, internships and become entrepreneurs in the music industry.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
