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

Rating: 5 stars  

This program is nothing short of amazing, beneficial, productive, and has changed my life for the better in so many ways. I graduated from the program in 2007 and am currently the youngest and only graduate on the Board today. I had a wonderful internship, and really built on my resume, communication and speaking skills, and made relationships that will last a life time. The Center For Youth Development of Law gave me a platform of opportunities that I never would have gotten anywhere else. They gave me a scholarship that allowed me to achieve my higher education career at St. Mary's College of California and gave me the motivation to pursue my dreams as an attorney. This program changes lives, I am a living example and testify to that.

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

So many ways, from my internship, the life and world of work skills that I took away from the program, the networking and overall the opportunities that this program has created for me have been incredible.

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

It has really changed my life and done for me what no other program has or ever could do. It is one of a kind, and I actually aspire to create a program modeled after this one because of the great impact it had on me and in my life.

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

There to really make a difference, and you could tell. Each student had the chance to be paired with a mentor and the mentors were volunteers, they were great. The Board of Directors are volunteers, without them the program wouldn't be possible.

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

Serve so many more students and could do so much more. For this program finances is the biggest set back so to have that kind of budget would allow for the program to do a whole lot more of what they have already been able to accomplish.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
