Review for A W O L All Walks of Life Inc, Savannah, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AWOL Inc is one of my favorite non-profits. Each time I'm around the staff and kids involved, I find myself inspired and hopeful for the future.

Working with limited resources AWOL takes kids that our society has written off, and transforms them into optimistic, focused future-leaders through mentor-ship and well designed arts and technology programs.

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

Learning about the life stories of the kids and seeing what they're doing now as a part of the AWOL Inc family is enough to inspire anyone. This organization proves to me that anyone can make a difference, and that all of our kids, whether poor or privileged can shine when given an opportunity and encouragement.

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

Make sure they had the financial resources and space to help more kids. If we can't support and grow an organization like AWOL Inc then I really don't see how as a society we have any chance of ending the cycle of poverty and crime.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I've supported their events and leveraged my company's skills to help them with fundraising, online and in event marketing efforts.
