Review for Youth Together Inc, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Youth Together has made an extremely positive impact in my life. Growing up in East Oakland was not the most safe and empowering experience, but with Youth Together I had the privilege of being part of making positive changes and empowering my community. I also have had the opportunity to succeed in college with the support of Youth Together. I have committed my life to social justice organizing and empowering youth because of Youth Together.

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

lives of many of us who continue to work in our community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to prioritize the youth.

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

having the opportunity to find my strengths and weaknesses.

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

people who have dedicated their lives to the struggle for changes.

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

reach more youth, parents, and community members.

Ways to make it better...

we had more support from school administrators and public officials.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

having to defend the work and lack of financial support from the schools they serve.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Youth Together has made me the person I am today.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Client Served & I helped implement the College and Career Center at Fremont Federation of High Schools in Oakland, CA.
