Review for Critical Exposure Inc, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

To engage with Critical Exposure is to be struck by three things: 1) that it teaches a skill - photography - that gives children an empowering voice and a potential avocation later; 2) the maturity of its staff and programs despite its size; and 3) the way it just executes on all cylinders. Attend one of their functions and you cannot help but see the power of their mission at work, on the walls in the form of the photographs underprivileged children take to document the deplorable conditions of their schools and living circumstances.

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

the faces and voices of the children who show up to show off their work proudly and tell the story behind their visions; the volume of volunteers who freely give their time to make the events happen; and in the way the staff interact with the Board.

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

the way you can hear in the children's voices the empowerment they feel from what they have created and learned in Critical Exposure's classes.

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

Phenomenally dedicated!! They truly make all the events occur without a hitch at interesting venues around the city to spread the good word to the viewing public.

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

reach more children nationally, while becoming more self-sustaining (to live through inevitable funding difficulties).

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Board Member & I am helping CE build mature processes (while maintaining its entrepreneurial spirit) so it can become even more successful and serve more children.
