Review for Running Start, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Running Start Young Women's Political Retreat has been by far the best experience of my life. I was taken into another world. The speakers we had were amazing. I couldn't believe I met people who were from Ivy Leagues or CEO's. And, best of all they were women. Walking around DC was amazing. I was so thrilled to be there and grasp all the education they fed us in the five days. I would for more girls to be able to be part of Running Start. Susannah Shakow, the founder and president makes this program rich. Her presence is delightful. Plus, all the other staff made me and the rest of the girls feel so comfortable. I loved it. I came back home with a heart full of enery and need to live to bigger and better things. Because after Running Start I -know- I will be great and I have many opportunities.

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

leadership and social skills.

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

the extreme boost of confidence that I received through lectures. And, meeting amazing girls accross the country with similar qualities and interests as me.

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

amazing. They were very helpful and fun. They made sure we were all together as a group.

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

establish a Running Start YWPL Retreat evey city they could. They would NOT deny girls based on financial issues. This program doesn't take your money in order to participate.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
