Review for Operation Understanding DC, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Operation understanding helped me figure out who I am as a person, my passions in life, and how to achieve everything I want. With the immense amount of negativity and hatred in the world, operation understanding was the light at the end of the tunnel. Oudc gave me the tools to combat discrimination and hatred while giving me the best friends that I could ever ask for. Oudc is so much more than an organization. It really is a family and an amazing one at that. It truly is hard to write in words how much oudc has touched my life and fantastic the organization really is.

Review for Operation Understanding DC, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

OUDC is an amazing program for young teens to become even better leaders in their communities and really discover themselves. I think that by being a part of this program I have found a strong sense of self and much more self-confidence. OUDC gives you the skills to take all of the great information that you learn and share it with the rest of the world so that little by little everyone will be making changes in the way we think about other who think, feel, and act differently than ourselves.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

is meeting other teenagers who care so much about other people and learning more about not only other culutures but my own Jewish identity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

brilliant. I have never met any other adults who try to reach out to teenagers the way they do and they really want to understand what we are thinking and truly respect us and treat us as one of their peers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change an entire state.

Ways to make it better...

my time with my classmates and the program was even longer.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

narrowing down the number of students they can accept.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish that every student could go through the program and really learn about themselves and learn to accept others and find the passion to erase all the hatred in the world.
