Review for National Council of Jewish Women Incorporated, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer in the Alexandria House Teen Center. They provide a safe place for teens to get help with homework, hang out and enjoy enrichment activities. I enjoy helping the students develop an appreciation for art, writing and etiquette. The NCJWLA organization does so many great things for low income families in Los Angeles.

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

Watching students build their self-efficacy by attending poetry events, writing poetry and creating art for an art show at a local cafe.

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

recruit more artists and dance volunteers. The teens have expressed interest in hip hop dance, singing, acting, drawing, painting and other creative endeavors.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely
