Review for YouthWorks, a Program of Goodwill of Southwestern PA, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked for YouthWorks for just over a year. We are beginning to implement an exciting new strategic plan, which will increase the number of youth we serve by 100% in five years! If anyone can achieve this goal, it's the YouthWorks' staff. This is an organization that strategically cultivates winning partnerships with other youth-serving organization, employers, and youth.

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

dedicated to improving the employability of and employment opportunities for our region's youth.

Review for Human Services Center Corporation, Turtle Creek, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The HSCC has afforded me invaluable experiences to grow professionally. I first began working with the HSCC as an intern during my senior year at the University of Pittsburgh. I gained amazing first-hand experience writing grants, coordinating events, conducting planning studies and developing needs-driven, quality programming, such as the Youth LIFE after school program. During graduate school, I interned for several other organizations, but would always make time to do additional work for the HSCC, including facilitating studies about fundraising events, contributing to legislative agendas, and assisting in raising money for its endowment campaign. After I graduated with my Masters Degrees (MSW, MPA) from the University of Pittsburgh, I served a one-year term for HSCC's Board of Directors through Leadership Pittsburgh's Leadership OnBoard program. Each program and project of the HSCC is guaranteed to be high-quality, which is why I continue to donate money to and volunteer for the HSCC. You may have seen me helping to build a playground in the HSCC's courtyard, serving meals at its 25th Anniversary, or walking for the HSCC team at the annual HIV/AIDS Awareness Walk. I am proud to be associated with this organization and look forward to continuing to give back for years to come!

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

knowledgable, professional, and driven to excellence.

Ways to make it better...

I could have worked there longer!
