Review for Running Start, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Running Start has helped me grow as an individual. I learned more from the 5 days I spent in the retreat than I have my entire life, both about myself and about the people around. I was able to watch as I, along with my fellow participants, become more confident with ourselves. Though we are leaders one way or another, Running Start gave us the extra push we all needed to aim for what we want, regardless of stereotypes and those who make it their business to bring us down. Running Start gave me the opportunity to meet and interact with people whose job involves positive changes using one small act at a time. Running Start makes it possible for us to change the world.

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

my everyday life and not just in the 5 days of the retreat. Everything i learned from this organization, I can take it with me and apply it to anything I decide to do. I don't have to be a politician or be in politics to lead the change.

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

meeting people from various backgrounds who were willing to listen. Be it congresswomen, other nonprofit employees and even the participants who are my age allowed me to learn something for them and vice versa.

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

people who have given me the confidence as a woman to stand up for what I believe in and use that as a tool for change.

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

easily affect change outside the borders of the United States because of the brilliant women behind it.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
