I once heard a talk from a representative of the ESP organization and was so impressed with the concept and goals that I decided to make a contribution. I don't know of any other organization that is so targeted with the goal of seeing that the next generation learn the necessary skills to increase their chances of being successful parents. They are a wonderful group of volunteers truly seeking to create a better world by focusing their resources on one of the most critical age groups in our society -- young adults entering adulthood. Congratulations on a job well done!

I love supporting this organization, which helps teens think about what kind of family they would someday like to have and the best way to get there. ESP has a very effective way of getting teens to explore issues such as waiting until adulthood before parenting, staying in school, and preparing for a future career. They also effectively focus on how to prevent child neglect and abuse. As a donor, I particularly appreciate ESP's effort to leverage funds to serve as many teens as possible. Their useful updates keep me informed of the effect they are having on teens.

This program has been transforming students from children into young responsible adults that are going to be the future of this country. By learning how to be a successful parent they can make educated choices about entering into that covenant. This is a very empowering for young people who are in those transitional years of evaluating whether and when to pursue a higher education, trade school or to start a family. It teaches them there are options and how to look at the consequences of their choices before it's too late. I think "life skills" classes like this should be required in every High School in this country. Education for Successful Parenting exhibits the kind of education that is essential to the children of the future. I look forward to hearing about repeated success.
