Review for New Haven Help Alliance Inc, New Haven, CT, USA
Greater New Haven Help Alliance is a terrific nonprofit that focuses on poverty and youth issues. It's summer Youth Initiative Program provides kids with practical job skill training as well as addresses character development. As an advisor to the program I have had the privilege of seeing youth come into the program with no direction and leave the program confident and focused with a plan and a purpose! The strength of the program seems to lie in the fact that much care is given to create and foster a loving supportive environment. The enthusiasm of the leaders is absolutely contagious and the youth thrive on the support and positive experience received in both their training and in their job placements. I believe the program would benefit from increased finances which would enable the program to include more participants.
