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

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering with First Glance for about 6 months and I think the thing that has impacted me the most is the relationships being built there. The leaders truly love volunteering and listening to the teens talk about everything that's going on in their lives. The teens can come and be loved simply because they are who they are. There is NO pretense. These students could choose to do anything with their Thursday or Friday nights. They come to First Glance not because we put on a great show, but because they have deeper needs that can't be met without someone taking the time to listen to their story.

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

moving out of my comfort zone and making time for teens who just want someone to talk to

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

wonderful! Committed to the students and to seeing them make good choices.

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

expand, expand, expand.
