I have quietly observed this program for 5 years. It is filled with family hiring family from the top to the bottom. Workers have no interest in helping kids learn and their idea of teaching is not realistic. I have seen them google information to pass on to the children. There is always a budget problem with some sites but not others. Someone should really check were their money is, because thay are always asking for donations but don't use it on the kids. This program needs to be investigated.
Review from Guidestar
Directions for Our Youth, or DFOY as it's called is a remarkable organization! I have worked with other groups that serve children and communities, but DFOY is different because of their passion. Every person on board cares about the children so much, and treats them like family.
The annual events in the schools are spectacular; such as the haunted house, for Halloween, the fashion and talent shows, and Winter Holiday celebration where Santa arrives bearing gifts for every single child.
Simply said, I love DFOY!
