This is a tremendous non-profit. The schools are in great need for help and support. The First Priority Tri County group helps the schools by empowering students to lead and brings adults in for support. I recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Unlike many other organizations this one gives each child no matter their social status a feeling that they are needed and wanted. It makes them feel as if they can make a difference not only in their own lives but in others also.

This organization gives hope to children without reason to hope. It reaches out to all youth. I see this organization fulfilling the life of hope to all teens and younger children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more time and money to get this almost impossible chore done.

You cant put words to what First Priority does in the schools of eastern Kentucky. Bianca gets to eat a hot sausage biscuit every Friday morning because of FP- its the only time she gets to eat McDonalds, she said. Kelsie was devastated after her family suffered from a break-in- she had someone to comfort her and listen because of FP. Allyson had been the popular kid, attending all the high-school parties- now she leads the school in a positive way because of a speaker at FP. Jacob was lost but now he has found the One, True Savior because of an invitation given at FP. Huge impacts from individuals in FP who have a heart for the lost.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

First Priority desperately needs more funding. We try to provide fun activities as an alernative to bad habits, snacks for students that come to school hungry, and tee shirts to unite all our kids together, but our funding is so limited we depend on the donations of churches or individuals. Many times it is not enough for all that we would like to provide.

I've been involved with First Priority since early 2000. It's one of the most productive, positive, character-building programs I have seen used in school. It provides an avenue for community, church and school to combine resources, come together and IMPACT the lives of students. Students reaching students, encouraging each other to make postive life choices and have a POSITIVE impact in our schools and communities is the driving force behind FP Tri County. I wish every school took advantage of this resource for it's students.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of anything.

I sponsored First Priority at South Laurel High School until I began teaching at another school. First Priority Tri-County is an amazing organization! It has grown and changed to reach out to the different student groups within schools as well as to the community. They are developing young people to become effective leaders, as well as reaching out to our communities and world.

Love this group! Not only does it give students a positive role to play in our school, but also encourages leadership and evangelism.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to provide transportation for students. Often, in high poverty areas, students rely on busses to transport them. It's hard to have afterschool or before school events when parents are UNABLE to transport. This would be a huge undertaking and I understand why funds can't be used, but if I could change anything, it would be that more students could have opportunities to come.
