Working with at-risk kids after school to enhance their math and reading skills is extremely rewarding. The improvement these kids make with personal attention is remarkable. Additionally, the kids learn how to interact with each other and with adults in a warm and friendly environment. A wonderful experience for the volunteers to make such an impactful contribution to the future of this area.

Being the host pastor for the East Naples site is and has been a total win/win. The benefits for us of hosting New Horizons accrue everyday. Our church is more connected to the community as a place of help, our church members volunteer and receive a personal blessing, and under served children in our neighborhood are given a hand up to the chance for a better life. The staff and administration are always responsive and are easy to work with. A big thumbs up for New Horizons!

My wife and I have tutored at NH for 8 years and can personally see the impact this great organization is having on the lives of at-risk children. I have been so impressed with the amount of good NH is doing in the community, that I am now a member of the Board.

I had never volunteered as a mentor for children before, but I did teach sailing to kids 9 to 16 years old a few years ago, and I recalled that I had enjoyed watching them absorb the info I was teaching them. So when I was presented with the opportunity to teach at-risk children, I figured, "why not?". After 9 months of weekly sessions with mainly fourth graders, I again got to experience that same joy. The New Horizons programs are very well done and well thought out. The kids really appreciate the help that they get from volunteers, and it leaves you feeling so rewarded for your efforts! The results are obvious, and I eagerly await the new school year to do it again.

We moved here permanently in December of 2013 and I searched for an organization to become involved with that would make a difference in the community. New Horizons is just such an organization. The kids served are wonderful and will become contributing members of our community, and the impact on their families will be lasting. I volunteer as a tutor with the Super Teens Club and am looking to become even more involved with New Horizons.

I tutor two days per week at New Horizons. It is amazing how much the kids have improved throughout the school year. I am confident that many of these kids will be the first to attend college in their families. Also, they will be great contributors to our nation as adults.
