Review for Street Law, Inc., Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I cannot speak highly enough of Street Law. The mission is focused and impactful, the staff is the best I've seen in 3 decades of NGO work, and the organization's tight focus on maximizing the amount and percentage of funding that go directly into programs is impressive.

I have seen the organization from multiple vantage points since I was a Street Law volunteer teaching civics in local middle and high schools when I was a law student in 1983 and 1984. I know from personal experience just how powerful an impact it can make on teens when they are exposed to civic engagement processes, basic rule of law concepts, and methods for resolving disagreements and reaching consensus -- life skills too often not taught in traditional school curricula.
