Review for Ethels Foundation for the Arts Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ethels Work with the Navajo has been extraordinary. For the last 4 years they have come to the middle of the Navajo Reservation (Chinle Az) and worked with a group of young aspiring composers in my high school music room. The development of self esteem I see from the students in the program is astounding. This year two of those students have applied and auditioned for multiple music schools including Berklee. The interview teams have been very impressed with their composition skills and are encouraging composition scholarships for the students. How altruistic Ethels work is! The music and ove of music is at the highest level-only exceeded by their caring and encouragement given to the students they work with.

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

Chinle Arizona working with High School students in my classroom.

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

Raise more money to allow more students the opportunity to be involved.

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

Working with Ethel , the performances of the student compositions and seeing the growth in each kid.

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

Amazingly dedicated and kind people. Very well organized and hard working.

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

Expand programs working with artists and students, exposing the general community to important artists, encourage greater creativity in the youth of our country developing a sense of Americas Music History in the process, the unique Americana blend.

Ways to make it better...

My colleagues in the district were more aware of how great an opportunity this is for our students.

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

Reaching a larger appreciative audience, raising funds to continue their giving back to communities through their artwork.

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

They make a differnece and the world a better place.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
