Review for Youth Science Center, Hacienda Heights, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My kids have attended the summer sessions for 3 years and even though it's 20 miles away from our home it is well worth the drive! I can't say enough good things about the program they offer for the kids from over 60 different classes, to the well-trained teachers and staff! It's was a pleasure to go there. Every summer I tell my friends about their program. One year I even brought my Cub Scout Den after school to check out their hands on museum. I just wish they had a YSC closer to us or even in every School District!

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

Since I was a parent volunteer in the classroom I was able to watch my kids experience the oohhs and aahs of discovering science. It was a sheer pleasure to help the other kids too. I even got to learn a little myself when my son took a web design class

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

... build a bigger building to house their museum and have them offer satellite classes to the neighboring school districts.

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

The wide variety of classes and the GREAT, inexpensive field trips they offer every summer!

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

The teachers were excited to be there and it showed in their teaching. The volunteers were happy to be help too, just like I was.

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

. . . build a bigger building for their museum. Maybe they could even offer classes further away.

Ways to make it better...

If it was closer to my home! 20 miles is far, but well worth the drive for what they offer.

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

As with any nonprofit - earning money to keep all the great programs going!

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

. . . now that my kids are getting older, I wish the YSC would offer summer classes thru high school.
