Would you recommend Youth Outreach Services - Chicago, IL?

by Irma S. from Chicago, IL (July 18, 2009)
I highly recommend this agency for the impact they created in my life 16 years ago. They came to my classroom in the 6th grade and offered wonderful services to our classroom which had many at-risk students. They did games which might have seemed insignificant at the time but were highly motivating for our self-esteem. They also did a great job warning us about the problems with drug abuse and gang affiliations. YOS really motivated me to speak up to friends about the concerns I had with their drug abuse and gang involvement. Thanks YOS!
