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

Rating: 5 stars  

FIRST GLANCE...truly bleeds their mission. They exists to connect to students in the community. Since the start the MISSION has always been the heartbeat. What is most astounding about this organization is the contagious PASSION (driven by the mission), not only amongst the staff & students, but throughout the community. This passion has acted as a catalyst in a re-focus of community/personal values: family/faith/character...the list goes on and on! In a world, where compromise is commonplace & lack of direction is prevalent...FIRST GLANCE remains steadfast & firm in their purpose! (if you don't believe me--check it out for yourself)

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

a number of arenas, such as 2nd Look: a community wide youth service (incorporating church communities throughout Kenmore), Rec Nights (initial student contact is usually made through this vehicle), etc....

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

the direct connection with the community and students. The opportunities to make an impact in these students lives is beyond measure.
