Review for KALEIDOSCOPE YOUTH CENTER INC, Columbus, OH, USA
I have served on the board of directors for KYC for over 3 years; in that time I've seen the staff of KYC show up for the youth they serve every single day. Every staff member here is a passionate advocate for LGBTQ+ youth and demonstrates enormous compassion and dedication on a daily basis. Beyond their passion, they are competent and capable people who with capacity for both joy and serious dedication. They hold space for the youth to be themselves, to feel safe, and to feel seen as their authentic selves.
I have also had the advantage of working closely with the organizational leadership (current Executive Director: Erin Upchurch; Deputy Director: Karen Hewitt). I am amazed at their dedication to not only serving KYC youth NOW but in ensuring the future of the organization through partnership with the Board of Directors. I have confidence that their stewardship is preparing KYC for another great 25 years of growth and service to the youth of central Ohio--and beyond.
