My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for New Haven Help Alliance Inc, New Haven, CT, USA
I have been with the Greater New Haven Help Alliance for many years and just became a lead worker in the Youth Initiative Program. I really enjoy the environment that it gives. They send a positive message to the youth that are in the program. They also allow a safe place for youth to be during the summer instead of being out in the streets getting into trouble. As a Lead worker, I have gotten a lot of essential experience. I learned how to better lead my peers and how to hold workshops that help keep the youth on the right path.
The Greater New Haven Help Alliance is a great place for youth to go and be enriched with not only work experience, but a christian experience. During the summer, we hold workshops that are fun and have a special meaning behind it. We always compare what was done in the workshop to certain events that happen in the bible. It gives the youth more undertanding to the teachings of the staff.
Overall, it is a great place for youth to learn and grow in many ways. it is a safe environment for fellowship and gives practical experience in the work place.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The Youth Initiative Program for about 5 years before I became a Lead Worker.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
help volunteer more and try to get more people to help and support the Greater New Haven Help Alliance.
