I am very impressed with the professional level of teaching young men and women with disabilities skills in cooking and communication skills and relationships with others. These skills are learned more willingly in a setting without the usual caregiver always there. Also the time slot of two and a half hrs. gives me time to accomplish something while I know my daughter's best interest and needs are being met. I also do what I am able to help E.T.L. with the funding piece, and this is not so easy, as Exeter group is only one year old in our community.

The Great!

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

E.T.L has been a positive experience for us, except for hard to do fundraising.

I like Ethel's Tree of Life. It's fun, we get to have fun with friends, get to do a lot of great activities, and I learn how to be independent. I learned that you can't give an attitude when ever you don't get your own way. I also learn how to create stuff.

I've accompanied a group of Ethel's Tree of Life students on a day skiing and saw one young lady who was reluctant to ski, relax, gain confidence, and enjoy the experience as she earned high praise from the instructor. By the end of her lesson, she was beaming with pride in her new skill. I also worked in the youth employment program the summer of 2009 and saw students living with significant disabilites gain skills and confidence as the program progressed. Several came out of their shells, as they learned new skills both in independent living and in employment skills. The Job Club, run this spring and summer by volunteers offered similar opportunities to more students. It's great to see these young people build their confidence as they build their skills!

The Great!

seeing the way it's helped young poeple who are living with various disabilities, offering them experiences they otherwise would not have.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more opportunities for even more students, offer jobs as well as job training to students, purchase a building for our headquarters, and provide our director with a decent salary and health benefits.

Ethel's Tree of Life was founded due to a need in our geographic area for transition training in life and work skills for a very vulnerable population of youths and young adults. Since 2003 ETL has been serving Seacoast New Hampshire and Southern York County Maine with activities, opportunities, and, adventures that help to build the skills that will be needed in adult life.
