Review for Youth Together Inc, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

YT is one of the most comprehensive organizations I've had the privilege of working with. Based on a Theory of Action that links grassroots organizing to policy change while directly serving the needs of young people on a daily basis, YT has tremendous impact up and down the East Bay. As a teacher organizer working with students at our school site and as a Board Member, I'm able to experience different levels of this impact and see how youth are empowered through multiracial organizing. I am amazed at the scope and quality of the work that YT is able to pull off. As for a critique, how can YT do more of what YT does?

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

Youth and Community Empowerment Culture building at a school site Quality events and campaigns organized by young people Highly effective staff and organizational structures and systems.

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

Dedication and quality of the people committed to YT.

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

Dedicated, committed, passionate, qualified, experienced, conscious, active

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

Continue to empower young people to constructively change our world! Specifically, ramp up salaries for staff, continue to recruit quality employees, develop a media campaign, update and develop organizational technology (database, server etc.)

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008
