Reviews for Omni Youth Programs

Rating: 5 stars

I am a teen who has been apart of many of the programs Omni Youth Programs has to offer. I think it is so important for teens today to have all the facts before they make important decisions in life. Especially on the decision on whether or not to drink or use drugs. There is a lot of pressure out there and a lot of bad information. I appreciate the voice and the support that Omni has given me.

I am in law enforcement and have worked with Omni Youth Programs for over 10 years. i have always been impressed with their professionalism and their ability to make a difference with the youth in our area and their families. Marijuana use among youth is rampant so their work is important now more than ever.

I started as an intern and am now a "Prevention Educator" at Omni Youth Program all I can say is that this non profit organization is amazing! Their mission to empower the youth is an excellent goal that they have been achieving, and will continue to achieve. I admire that Omni Youth Programs focuses on educating the public and youth about the dangers of underage drinking and drug use. The way this organization gives back to the community any way they can through their Model Program Training's, interactive exhibits, or community events is inspiring .

Omni Youth Programs is an incredible nonprofit organization that is passionate about giving back to the community. As a current intern, I was given the opportunity to learn about Omni Youth Programs' mission to help educate the youth about drug and alcohol prevention. The team at Omni Youth Programs is dedicated in their work and are always finding innovative ways to reach out to the community.

I had wonderful experience working with the staff. I volunteered at Omni Youth for the summer and they all became just like my family. Everyone is so welcoming and nice. Everyone was very supportive of each other. They all work really hard to find creative ways to reach the families that need help. Looking forward to intern at Omni Youth in the spring as they are such amazing people to work with. :)

I fully support the work that Omni Youth Programs conducts. They are always finding new ways to reach the Sacramento teens and parents with drug prevention messages and skills. They spend funding wisely and efficiently, and are constantly being creative to reach as many people as possible. It is amazing how much work they do with minimal staffing.

I have been working with Omni Youth Programs for over 13 years and have always had tremendous respect and admiration for all they do to help the youth and families of my community. The staff and administrators are passionate and dedicated about what they do. My daughters have gained so much from the information and support they receive from Omni Youth Programs. I know, as a parent, I feel much more secure about them heading into their teen years with the foundation Omni has provided them.

I was introduced to Omni Youth Programs in the fall of 2004. I have remained invested in the continued success of this non profit because they place a tremendously high priority on allocating their resources and time directly to the community they serve. No dollar is wasted and Omni always responds to the needs of their public with passion and respect for any unique need that is posed. I have seen, first hand, the power of prevention on our community. I truly believe that is more powerful and easier to build strong children and families that support them rather than trying to repair and adult. Our youth needs this agency to guide and support them into the positive future of their choosing.

The leadership of this organization lives by and understands its mission. The work environment is a place where the staff loves to come to every day. There is no end to what this agency is willing to do and has done for its community.

Omni Youth Programs is an extremely professiona and nurturing agency who cares about training the youth counselors of tomorrow as much as it cares for the at risk youth and families it serves. It accompishes a TREMENDOUS amount of success with very low agency cost ($.93 of every dollor goes directly to the programs!) That really empressed me! It also strives to impact the community as a whole by providing services year after year for it's clients and their families at home. If you want your donated dollor to go far and have an immediate and lasting impact, Omni Youth Programs is a wonderful agency for which to donate.

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

The amount of violence and conflict immediatly decreases (as reported by the teachers) after the program has begun. Some of my youth clients committed to being the first in their family to stay out of gangs and stay away from harmful sunstances.

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

Do whatever I could to find more money, grants, etc. so that our programs could have an even wider reaching, broader positive impact.

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

Learning hands on techniques that have an immediate impact. It was so wonderful to receive such effective training, tools, and support so that I could see and instant change in the youth I served.

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

Very devoted and supportive. They trusted me to learn how to develop my own technique while following their curriculum. They were also lots of fun!

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

Use it's experience and financial genious to positivly impact every at risk neighborhood in it's vicinity. The surrounding neighborhoods would see a decrease in truency, crime rate, and drug use.

Ways to make it better...

The funding was available to continue their programs for more days at more schools.

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

The budget cuts they are currently experiencing as well as the decrease in people who are willing to donate. With even just a small amount of monetary support, this agency could accomplish so much more!

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

If this agency loses it's funding, the schools and neighborhoods is serves would suffer greatly. Not only would truency and school violence increase, but students would never know of their power of choice to choose a better path than those around them.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

Omni continues to show great results in their efforts to educate our community to the impact and realities of alcohol and drugs on our youth. The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is never truer when it come to alcohol and drugs and our children.

I work in collaboration with this organization for over 5 years, we worked to reach the most unrepresented communities and were training Russian-speaking immigrants in Sacramento on such topics as tobacco and alcohol prevention, and on parenting skills on how to prevent teens from using substances. This organization is always on the top, providing the best services to the community and is reaching to those that traditionally are neglected by other organizations due to invisibility or misperseption of needs. Proud to serve together!
