Review for National Urban Coalition For Unity And Peace, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with this program for the last four years. It started out as a volunteer requirement for a college course I was taking. I stayed on because, I saw the impact it had one motivating and educating mostly underprivileged children on the value of education, hardwork, and respect for the community. In the community, NUCUP has been shaping young minds to suceed for over twenty years. We need more organizations like NUCUP that make a difference.

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

2009. I seen children who were once "NUCUP" kids, become college grads. Some even return to volunteer from time to time.

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

The only problem I see with the organization is a lack of staff. This problem occurs because lack of funding, donations, grants. If only local, state, and federal governments would recognize the importance of such organizations and their impact.

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

Is the interaction with the youth.

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

They all had love for the children. Trying to convey NUCUP values.

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

WOW!!!!! If NUCUP had that kind of money, We could probably create on of the countries largest and most effective, alternative learning centers for kids in the country.

Ways to make it better...

We had more resources.

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

financial.

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

I plan to give more of my time and money to help NUCUP.

About every week
