Review for Operation Understanding DC, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I work at a school that regularly sends students to the OUDC program. Not only does our school benefit from the rich relationships established from OUDC through its staff and network, but also by having our own students come back to teach their fellow students and teachers about what they have learned. Recently, one of our african-american male OUDC students invited his jewish male OUDC colleague to speak at our Martin Luther King Memorial Chapel. It was a powerful and authentic realization of the mission of OUDC.

Review for Operation Understanding DC, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I am a diversity director at a MD independent school. We have had various students from our school go through the OUDC program with wonderful results. I know OUDC graduates to be fantastic facilitators and end up educating their own school communities as a result of their experience. I find OUDC to be well-run and organized in its selection process and implementation of the program.

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

The facilitation and leadership skills honed by graduates helped grow our school's own diversity program. Also, OUDC recruiters came to our school to talk to students, and ended up counseling all the students they talked with about setting high goals and working hard in school.

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

create a more stable website with more information.
