Review for Rainbow Village, Inc., Duluth, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with Rainbow Village in Duluth, Georgia has been extraordinary. I volunteer 2 days per week in the "After School Program." I mainly help the kids with their homework assignments (like a tutor) and have also taken on "reading buddy" duties. I have been privileged to see each child expand their scholastic knowlege, be fully engaged in the learning process and develop a higher academic level of achievement. I have great hopes for each child and believe Rainbow Village is a unique, holistic program helping Mom's and their families toward life stability and brighter futures. -Margo K., Duluth, GA

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

Since August I have seen the kids become more cooperative with authority, develop positive behavior skills, sincerely desire to do well at home and in their schools.

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

Reduce the amount of students to volunteer ratio. Perhaps 1 volunteer to 2 students would be great! Overtime this is a great possibility.

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

The kids and the program managers/directors who desire to assist the kids in being better people, students and family members.

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

All the staff and volunteers have been exceptional. We just need the volunteers to show up on a steady, predictable basis.

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

Provide all the housing and after school tutors which we desperately need at this time.

Ways to make it better...

We had additional volunteers who would be happy and able to make a consistent effort to help on a regular basis.

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

The desire/need to grow the program and accept more needy families. For that expansion we need a larger budget.

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

If we don't help the children at a very early stage in life with the right mentors and instructors, their chances at successful lives becomes marginal at best.
