Review for Friends for Youth, Inc., Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Friends for Youth is a jewel of an organization that has been addressing the issues of at risk kids for 30 years! Mentoring is a proven methodology for introducing and supporting healthier behaviors and lifestyles, and FFY knows how to both match mentors and mentees for the best results, and provide the practical and emotional support that facilitates the best possible experience. I am proud to be a part of this important and high impact effort.

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

the words of the junior friends. They speak truly and deeply of how their friendships have changed their lives.

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

change the world by spreading these proven techniques and concepts to other communities and all the kids who would benefit from a true friend.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I am both a "senior friend" (mentor) and board member.

Review for RAFT (Resource Area for Teaching), San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

RAFT makes an active and tangible difference in the quality of our children's education. I am so proud to be able to support and endorse them!

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

passionate about the mission and committed to excellence. They know and understand both teachers and students.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Board Member & I have toured the warehouse, tried the experiments, and talked to teachers and heard enthusiastic appreciation of RAFT.
