I have been a mentor with Discovering Options for only a few months now, but I have already witnessed the positive affects of this wonderful organization. My protegee constantly talks about her wonderful experiences in the prep program and all of the activities she participated in, such as cooking and yoga. This program not only makes a positive impact in the children's lives but also in mine.
I've personally witnessed children experiencing activities, engaging in skills and delighting in achievements solely because the Discovering Options programs provided the safe place, good supervision and support which enabled them to do so. Activities such as martial arts, doing yoga, circus performing, conflict negotiating, crafts creating; and skills such as cooking. When a child discovers what they can do and finds the options which exist, that child is forever changed because their world opens up that much further
I have been a mentor with Discovering Options for almost 2 years now.
Their dedication to the community is invaluable to the kids and families they serve.
They help in so many different ways such as providing kids a place to go after school to learn something new, socialize with others, experience new things such as yoga, cooking, dancing, etc.
