My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Festival Center Inc, Washington, DC, USA
This is a place of welcome and learning where everyone who comes is encouraged to discover and share their own voice and vision. This happens through classes, event gatherings, a set-aside time of prayers at noon, and being a bridge daily among folks of diverse cultures and economic groups. If you are open to having your mind and heart expanded, this is the place. Not only for the formally educated, the so-called "power holders" of our society, but people from all walks of life. Check into the next term of classes, or attend the Tuesday evening speaker series. That's a good starting place to discover for yourself what the Festival Center is about.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
classes, events and other gatherings. And I personally benefit from having them located near my neighborhood because of their positive values and social justice work.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
encourage them to have a more welcoming presence at the front desk. Different people are there at different times and sometimes they don't notice who's coming and going. Also, the full-time staff and program directors aren't visibly present and available as much as I would like.
