Review for Renaissance Youth Center, Bronx, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the pleasure of working with Renaissance as a mentor with their teen program for young woman. I expected to be a role model, a leader, and someone that these young woman could lean on for encouraging words of support, what turned out was way more. I was inspired by the way the young ladies and young men, where eager to make it to Renaissance, blessed with their truth, honesty and trust,their perseverance through adversity, and bonding with one another. Through them and the program, my own feelings of trust where explored and rebuilt.

The youth are our future, there are tons of programs out there that have after school tutoring, sports etc, however the personal attention, parent involvement, which is mandatory, engages and encourages families.to.strive and.support.one another as.well as the surrounding communities in a way that has been lost in this fast paced world.

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