I would recommend the Educational Institute because it provides a true sense of community providing services and support for the englewood community. Working with this organization has allowed me to see englewood from a different perspective and I would recommend it for everyone.

The programs offered are extended to everyone with open arms. I personally believe that there is no room for selfishness in our world or lives today and one must challenge themselves and others to reach out to the less fortunate, help those in need, not be discriminative, stand firm in integrity, morals, ethics and respect and more importantly learn how to support and love each other. My experience has proven that those involved with Educational Institute have the same vision and hope as I myself, and to this, I am gratified
