Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU to everyone who works at the Youth Center. My daughter loves Music Classes. She always wanted to play a musical instrument but was afraid to fail. She decided to play saxophone this year. She met new friends, and now can play a few songs on saxophone! She is so happy about it and very proud of her achievement. I just want to tell thank you to all everyone who helps with Music Program. It's very affordable, doesn't require private classes and her instructor is ridiculously good! Thank you for making my daughter have more confidence and new friends. I am telling all my friends about your music program.

I am a parent participant of Every 15 Minutes Program. Students should apply to be a part of this program. You will make an impact on all those around you and will actually save lives in the process. It is intense, emotional and life changing. You will come out wiser, stronger and more appreciative of the gift of life you have and the power to make the right choices for yourself. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

I am so glad I was able to be apart of this amazing program and group!!! It was such a beautiful experience. I learned not to get behind a wheel and while under the influence or to get into a car who is drinking who is under the influence. I think it really made me a better person to cherish the friendships I have and to always let my parents know I love them. So thank you for that.

Everyone should definitely apply to be a part of Every 15 Minutes program. There's nothing to lose from it. From the time you get accepted and start going to secret meetings to seeing everyone at the final assembly is absolutely amazing. Everything about this program is amazing. It has changed my life for the better and everyone should be affected by this program for the better because of its sheer power and emotion.

If you want to make a difference, have a voice, or have the power to make an impact on at least one person's life and their decisions - be a part of Every 15 Minutes Program. This is the best thing that happened to me!

I am very glad I was part of Every 15 Minutes program. It was an amazing experience that I will always remember. The program taught me to appreciate everything and everyone because anything can change everything in your life in a split second. It showed me that drinking and driving is never worth it because one dumb decision can change the life of myself and others around me. This is an amazing program that should be run at every school and everyone should have the opportunity to experience this.
