It was amazing to be able learn from many educated and experienced mentors. The collaboration between the organizations was so helpful. In a relatively short time we have become a well working cohort. It is humbling to know that we have so much to learn on our journey and grateful to the accelerator program for providing these resources. I am still pinching myself that we are part of this first cohort. Meeting other organizations that understand and have the same needs and thirst for knowledge and for the business aspect of nonprofits has been a highlight.
We have been working full steam ahead building the machinery behind the scenes that will power our organization thus enabling us to fulfill our mission of empowering struggling youth. This has been an amazing program and we are exceedingly grateful to the OU and to Jenna for enabling us to be part of it! THANK YOU.
Mazal tov OU IA! In the past year GrowTorah has more than doubled the amount of schools we teach at as well as expanded our programming. In addition to teaching in the gardens, we have begun hosting family programing and bringing eco initiatives to our schools.
I was very skeptical about the program. This meeting was a game-changer for me. I have no words to express my hakarat hatov. You don’t understand the impact this will have.
Imadi has been created and established since we’ve applied to the OU accelerator program. We are currently servicing our community and assisting families. It’s been so beneficial for us to be setting ourselves up as we move forward with the program, as we are able to create an organization with the strongest structure through our wonderful experience.
The mentors, the staff, the camaraderie with the other cohort members. I am so grateful. Thank you for all the help, guidance, and support.
