Review for Artists Of America, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Makana. I am 20 years old and I am a student teacher for one of AOA's cartooning classes. I believe that AOA is an amazing organization! I love being able to help teach at risk children that they CAN grow up and be a positive contribution to society. Being able to help these children is important to me. Helping them learn that although they weren't given the best of circumstances to live in they can still be passionate about something and education really is important, what they choose to do with their lives really is important. Each and every one of these children are important. AOA gives me the opportunity to make a difference in some beautiful children's lives.

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

the smiles on the children's faces.

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

try to expand it as far as I could go.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being blessed in having the opportunity to make a difference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save a lot of children from going down the wrong live paths.

Ways to make it better...

I got to volunteer more hours, since I am still a full time student.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not enough funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have the best hopes for AOA in the future.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & teach children that art is important to their lives.
