I have known about Foundations For Life for about a year and throughout this time have seen how they continue to grow and serve as a positive influence in lives of countless children through their after school
programs. I admire FFL because it seeks to empower the very communities in which its members grew up in. FFL understands the communities' needs and seeks to address them in a direct and concrete way; through education. For their tremendous efforts, FFL can always count on my support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their after school programs.

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

not change a thing.

Foundations For Life is a wonderful organization that is committed to educating our young people and changing the way that they are taught. The workshops are geared towards helping people understand how the brain works and why whole brain learning is the most effective way to learn. Foundations For Life has also showed thier committment in bringing the community together with their annual Family Day events and other events that allow the community at large to come together. I hope people continue to support this organization because they are doing exactly what needs to be done for our young people.

As the Executive Director of Foundations For Life I am honored to be a part of a movement that id dedicated to uplifting our community through educational restructuring. It is the goal of our agency to create an environment of learning where each individual that we service can realize their full learning potential. Foundations for Life was founded on the beliefs that a systematic approach to education is best done by developing individual strengths and skills by promoting personal empowerment and self confidence. It is our mission to provide a higher learning experience that is divided into three general areas, educational services, support, and opportunities.

The FFL trainings were an educational experience for all of us, learning about ourselves and learning ways to improve our performance in school and life as well. We learned more about each other (those who participated in the trainings) and studied methods to help us better understand others. I thought the trainings were very helpful because the teachings can be applied to everyday life, whether work, school, or just taking care of business in the course of my day.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my decision making, or even my thinking process all together.

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

actually do nothing unless it is asked for.

Foundations for Life is an agency that is slowly but surely uplifting our community and changing the way we think and live our lives. Through the use of community workshops, mentoring and after school programs, we are well on our way to making a permanent impact not only in our community, but in society as a whole.

We have set out to change the way people study, think and learn while instilling the importantance of community in order to reshape how we as people function in society.

I am proud to be a part of this movement and to see the impact we are having on the lives we have touched. And I am looking forward to the impact we will have on those we haven't touched yet!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way my daughters read and learn. I have also gained a better understanding on how differently we all learn and what works best for each of my daughters.

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

continue to improve on expanding our network so that we are reaching as many as we can.

FFL’s training was enlightening and very much achievement oriented. They taught us in various ways to use a set of techniques, to find resolutions to tasks that we never knew we could accomplish. FFL trainings teach you how to use your mind, and manipulate your own thinking to create the things you want.

I’ve learned so much and my outlook on life has changed significantly since attending the FFL meetings. I see evidence of this change in my eagerness to face and overcome my fears. I am no longer afraid of taking tests or speaking in front of strangers because FFL not only reminded me of the power that was inside of me, but also gave me the tools to unlock it. I know now that I am the maker of my own destiny and that I am capable of greatness.

I would have the methods FFL teaches applied in every school across the country.

FFL is my extended family. Most of the members I knew and our comfortable meeting environment helped me to concentrate on the many learning techniques that we practice on. The things I learned in the meetings and the fun ways I learned them, I used to help the kids I tutor, and I've noticed an improvement in their grades. FFL has helped me alot in high school and the techniques I learned will continue to help me in college.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

school. My learning habits has definitely improved since I've became a member of the organization, especially learned about anchors and mind mapping, and i am extremely thankful.

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

change nothing. The people who ran FFL are pros at what they do and I can not imagine anybody else who can be better.
