Review for Renaissance Youth Center, Bronx, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with Renaissance Youth Center for the past 12 years. I have loved every minute of it! Being part of this organization is a true blessing. The Center offers youth from the South Bronx a place to learn, become a responsible citizen and feel welcome at a safe haven in a tough neighborhood. Students who walk through the door get an amazing music education, learn basketball skills and with this comes homework tutoring, SAT prep classes, mentoring sessions and so much more. Renaissance Youth makes a distinct difference in lives of the students and it is working! Our students are entering college, having career choices and even come back to be teachers in our Center. Renaissance Youth Center is an amazing place, with two amazing Directors at the helm. I could not be more honored to be working with this organization.

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

Encourage more individuals and corporations to donate money to the program. We need larger space so we can continue to grow the program. We need money in order to make some key hires.
