Review for Friends for Youth, Inc., Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Friends for Youth has a model that is proven to make a difference. Mentoring works in many venues, but providing an at risk youth with a positive, caring role model really can influence whether the path chosen is productive and positive. FFY needs mentors, board members and donors, as well as corporate supporters who "get" the model and work to make it happen0.

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

the path chosen by the children who are mentored.

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

the commitment to making sure the match of mentor and mentee is right, and the support given to make sure the match survives and prospers.

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

smart, committed, great listeners.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & serve as a mentor and board member.
