Review for Create Now, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am involved with createnow mainly in the capacity of a teacher, and I can say firsthand that it has made a positive impact on the lives of many, many kids.

The programs that I am involved in are geared towards disadvantaged youths/families that have "fallen through the cracks". We provided an outlet for the youths to express themselves in a safe, supportive environment through creative expression such as dance, music and drama.

A lot of the kids had never been part of any organized programs before and to see them grow as individuals and find their unique voices not only as performers but as people was inspiring.

We put together programs and shows under strict deadlines, time crunches, and limited budgets (often having to "improvise" to find space/materials) but managed to make it work.

The results are programs that we stand behind fully and completely, with the proof being the positive impact we have on many families lives.

Createnow is an organization I am proud to be a part of and hope to be for many years to come!
