My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Pineda Foundation, Berkeley, CA, USA
I have worked for this non-profit for the past few years. Pineda Foundation / World Enabled is a dynamic youthful organization, with clear capabilities in research, policy and advocacy. The organization is small but dynamic and has with limited resources created lasting change. Their involvement in global disability rights has helped shape the way for more resources to be directed towards youth with disabilities. The group started as a voluntary organization by a few people dedicated to transforming the experiences of young people with disabilities, it has since grown into a respected and reputable go to think tank for a variety of social issues ranging from policy design and assessments, research, capacity building and leadership training. The team has grown and the programs they've carried out have indeed transformed the lives of dozens of youth. Each young person receives mentoring and guidance, as well as benefits from expanding their professional and academic network of opportunities. They are active on social media, and were pioneers in producing educational and informational media products through their youtube channel. I am proud of being associated with this group and am grateful for the opportunities they have afforded me.
