Review for First Glance Student Center, Inc., Akron, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a community organizer for other service organizations in the Kenmore community I have had the joy of working with First Glance students and volunteers since its inception nine years ago. It has been wonderful watching the organization grow and to see the benefit reaped by the students and the entire community. First Glance exemplifies what a nonprofit should be. It is unsurpased in the quality of its volunteers and its committment to the youth in this community. They have found creative ways to reach out and to postively influence the students. I feel blessed that I have recently been able to take a more active role in helping First Glance grow.

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

The students from First Glance have served as the main body of volunteers for a series of yearly community events. Acting as hosts, craft aides, costumed characters, and set up and clean up crew.

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

seeing the tremendous impact that they have had on "at risk" kids.

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

extremely dedicated, selfless, and talented people giving freely of their time, talent, and self.

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

reach a greater number of "at risk" with additional and more extensive programs.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Board Member & I have worked as a coordinator and supervisor for community events in which First Glance Students have served as volunteers for the past nine years. I have also contributed some assistance with the building project and have helped with some grant writing.
