Review for Open Field, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have supported Open Field since its earliest days for two primary reasons.
First, I've known Justin, a founder and current CEO, since childhood and know that his intentions were always to help those around him. In our society, we often see this type of purpose jaded or lost over time; however, Justin and his team continuously prove to keep Open Field's Mission first. They are consistently growing, building, and adapting to make the most effective impact possible. They are savvy with their resources ensuring long term change and steady, efficient growth for a sustainable future in what feels like an unsustainable world.
Secondly, while their programs offer immediate, visible benefits for the participants, it is their focus on long term impacts that set them apart from so many other organizations. Their programs and events are designed to inspire and guide youth through many developmental stages both physically and mentally. They are cultivating a safe place where youth can express themselves, learn from one another and create a larger change within their communities. The values the participants gain through the lessons, coaches and each other will be felt on a global scale for years to come. It only takes one person to make a difference and Open Field is connecting over 1,200+ students across multiple continents. The positive quality of life these children will offer to our planet's future is endless and priceless.
