Review for Godparents Youth Organization, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the honor of knowing the founder of GYO, Tanya Walters for 5 years now. I have seen first-hand the impact GYO has had on young people across this nation. I have seen their lives transformed because of the love and support they received from the GYO staff. I am grateful for this organization and all that it stands for, it has been an answer to prayer! GYO is a part of the solution to a growing problem in this nation. Our youth need and deserves this program. Young people thrive when they are encouraged to reach their full potential. Tough Love, Proper Guidance and a Road Trip Reward has proven to be a winning combination for GYO!
