Review for Center For Youth Development Through Law, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I actively participated in the Center For Youth Development Through Law during My Last year of high school. This program couldn't have come at a more perfect time for me, being an adolescent, not having many positive influences in my life, coming to this program gave me a sense of accomplishment that motivated me to go to college and actively plan to pursue a career in law. I had always been interested in such academic areas of study from a very young age, however I had not a single opportunity to include myself in such a program, where I can experience and be part of a professional environment. My internship, which I received through the Center of Youth Development Thorough Law was amazing and helped me to really get outside my comfort zone, working at a Congressional office was a challenging task that help me to grow as a person and develop professional skills I otherwise would have missed out on. In addition once I entered college, I stayed connected with the program and was able to have access to allot of resources that help me through my academic life. This program was a key factor in helping me stay away from a life of meritocracy and crime unfortunately like some of my friends. I now believe that being part of such an organization can really help youth stay away from a life of juvenile delinquency and build positive communities.

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

all elements of my life, from school to work as well as home

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

have more staff, youth and more time to stay and benefit.

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

My internship and participating in mock trials. It was a great learning experience.

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

smart, outgoing, friendly and ambitious

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

Reach out to allot more youth and staff. There are many influential staff members out there that the program could hire and use to help inspire.

Ways to make it better...

I was able to do more

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

access to Resources, they need funding and more great staff members to reach out and help the community.

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

this organization changed my life...
