CLARKSTON COMMUNITY CENTER FOUNDATION INC
August 21, 2013

Clarkston Community Center makes room for everyone to participate, explore and build bridges. It truly is a community center. I have volunteered with the Center at various times. More recently, I am working with Clarkston Youth Initiative and the area youth on college preparation. The youth are the most wonderful kids I have had the pleasure to know. Staff and management are very supportive in providing us space, networking and more.

This summer we conducted a SAT boot-camp. The kids took a full SAT test at the beginning of the boot-camp and at the end. Every student increased their score by atleast 300 points!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

integrate technology to accurately measure the number of people who use the Center and the various reasons why people come.

UNITED 4 SAFETY INC
May 2, 2011

United 4 Safety is the only organization in the Southeast that provides support and services for survivors from the LGBTQQI community.

I have been a volunteer with United 4 Safety for a few years and I am amazed at how dedicated everyone is. Most everyone has been volunteering their time for over 2 years to get the organization off the ground.

In my experience, not everyone, even within the gay community are always open and accepting. I know for a fact that United 4 Safety is.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

i'm reminded of a specific training, when a mother whose son was transgender came back for day 2 and shared with us that after being in the training, she had finally called her son up after a long time.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find sustainable funding so that they could really reach all the counties in Georgia.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & i helped with fundraising and marketing for the organization.
