Review for Neighbors Of Seaton Place, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an employee, I must say that my experiences with the youth participants over the pass six years have been both a challenge and a pleasure. NOSP is a learning-site offering a non-traditional safe haven that offers its youth learning experiences that are geared to broadening conceptional skills in an attempt to open doors outside of their normal neighbor setting. Youth participating in the NOSP program are exposed to a social setting that encompasses both individual and group development programs and are encouraged to explore all aspects of cultural diversity and incorporate them into their every day lives as best they can. NOSP, a place to learn as youth grow and, of course, have fun.
