Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA
Through this present I Taylon Pérez, I am an intern in the office of Pa'lante Harlem in New York City. I started working in Palante this summer thanks to the Catholic Charities organization. My first day at this job was a little nervous because it was something new since I had no thought that I would work in an organization whose motive is to help people have better housing conditions.
My experience was very good because I really liked the positive energy they transmitted to me, the treatment they gave me, made me feel happy and sure of myself. However, what I liked most was that as the housing conference was approaching, we were assigned different buildings to distribute flyers door to door so that the tenants attended and could learn more about their rights and the new rent laws. I liked this a lot because while I was doing it I was getting to know our community more and every day on the streets I heard people talking good about our organization. Also, In the housing conference we learned a lot of housing and all the rights we have as tenants. Palante is more than an organization it is a family. This organization different from other really care about you as a human being not just as a client. I have been witness of all the people they helped. Now I still work at Pa'lante Harlem and I feel so happy to be able to help our community. This organization really inspires teenagers like us to keep our dreams up and if we really want something we could always do it. If you need help, the best place to go is Pa'lante Harlem.
