More Fire Nation is an amazing organization that I have been blessed to volunteer for. More Fire gave me an opportunity to get involved in areas of my city that truly need help. Working in the entertainment industry keeps me pretty busy during the week so I really like how More Fire offers weekend events that are easy to help with. The events are fun and inspirational and they truly leave you feeling like you are using your time, influence and heart for a purpose greater than you. I would highly recommend anyone coming to check out the next More Fire Nation event!!

It was so beautiful just to hear how much love they all shared for Mama Trice & her passion. It is amazing what Mama Trice is doing through this organization. Some of the testimonies that they shared with me were so inspiring! To know that her students lived the life that they had & survived is astonishing and no matter their age, their circumstance, what they have been through, they are still moving forward with their new found life & working toward continued education!

Tri-Tech Prep School is a wonderful organization with a mission dedicated to facilitating the transition of former gang-members, immigrants, recovered addicts into a contributing member of society. I am extremely proud to be a part of this unique institution in encouraging those tha t have little hope, with a second chance at life. I am most excited about the upcoming GED graduation ceremony celebrating the achievement of numerous graduates of this program. Many of these GED holders will continue on to college with great confidence that they have achieved while being apart of Tri Tech Prep School. I am honored to have been a volunteer and promise you that this is a great opportunity for anyone seeking to change people's lives for better.

I have served as a volunteer tutor under the direction of "Mama" Trice during the past sixteen months. It has been without a doubt a life changing experience for me. Mama Trice is an incredibly spiritual, dedicated and compassionate leader, deeply admired and loved by everyone who's lives she touches . She provides excellent structure and direction to all of the tutors and her many students. Her warm personality and interactive demeanor create a very disciplined, challenging and extremely comfortable learning environment. She takes the time to develop a close rapport with each individual student and adjusts her teaching technique to each specific learning level. She maintains a consistently positive, encouraging approach to her teaching and follows through to ensure each student reaches their maximum potential. I am extremely grateful for Mama Trice and I would most certainly recommend her Tri-Tech Preparatory school to any person in transition needing a place to learn and to grow.

Miss Petrina Trice, the founder of TriTech Prep, is such an inspiration to soo many individuals including myself. Her vision and dedication to assisting former gang members, immigrants, and other members of society desiring a second chance is incredible. Known to everyone as Mama Trice, her ability to teach with passion has enabled soo many of her graduates to obtain their GED. She instills confidence to those that never had hope and provides those broken and lost a second opportunity to succeed. I highly recommend anyone in search of making a difference in others to participate in some capacity to her cause to help those that need assistance the most. You will end up suprising yourself that your life will also be impacted in a positive way through her teachings and lessons as well.
