Review for The Next Step Fund, Inc., Cambridge, MA, USA
Next Step serves a population that is all too often forgotten. Maneuvering through young adulthood is difficult enough, but to navigate such a challenging time straddled with a serious illness presents obstacles most of us are fortunate not to experience. The amazing staff and volunteers of Next Step work tirelessly to help these brave young adults not only make it through, but thrive during the journey. I know the director personally, and he is one of the most selfless, hard working, inspirational men I have ever had the privilege to know. He spends weekends hands-on at workshops with the wonderful young adults who make up the population he is dedicated to serving, and days and nights relentlessly raising funds so he can help "just one more". If you want to feel the world becoming a better place, spend a day with Bill Kubicek, or volunteer at a Next Step workshop or event. You won't regret it, and you'll never forget it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Meeting and speaking with Next Step program participants, alumni and their parents and siblings.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Indentify and organize a nationwide volunteer network to bring the life changing programs of Next Step to young adults with serious illnesses in every state in America.
