I learned throughout the years that experience is easy to learn, but hard to apply. I believe IT’S TIME counters the latter point. I acknowledge that every journey has hardships but the concept behind it does not always have to be difficult to apply with a strong foundation. This organization is that “concept.” The hands on philosophy is the significant attribute that made this program a success. I have witnessed the impact the program has made firsthand through a family member that volunteered for a year. She was presented to a variety of critical information and abilities that has guided her through her young adult life. The Founders have implemented a motivating program that places the student first. An organization that values the financial awareness, communication skills, and careers of the youth will have a profound influence on the lives.

I am glad to say I'm a proud parent of a wonderful daughter of this Saturday morning group It's Time.It has been a pleasure for her to look forward each Saturday of the season to get up and get out to a new and exciting fun-filled,educational,motivating,encouraging and so much more discribing words to this program. I will strongly encouraged DC teens to joined in only if they are very serious about this program, so they can experience and learn more and i know for sure each and every child/student will benefit from "It's Time" just as much as my daughter is doing. Thanks to the great team especially to Ms. Zalenda and Mr. Keith, keep up the hard work,WAY TO GO.

I have been volunteering at IT’S TIME for a year and the experiences I have gone through are tremendous. Not only did I have the opportunity to be a part of an organization whose mission I believe is both essential and inspirational to the development of a child, but it also gave me the opportunity to be exposed to an array of professionals who were featured speakers at the Lunch Time Program. Being a sophomore at Howard University, I still feel the need for some counseling. By listening to these influential professionals, I found them extremely informative and helpful in formulating my own career choices; as well as giving motivation for the children within the program by inspiring them to reach above and beyond. There were speakers ranging from medical position, political positions, beauty pageants, etc. I commend the co-founders, Zalenda Cyrille and Keith Beverly, for IT’S TIME for their incredible vision. The challenges faced within the DC school system are momentous, however, IT’S TIME’s purpose is to help enlighten and challenge talented DC Middle School students by providing them greater opportunities and motivation to succeed. Thus, this will help fight the District’s educational problem. I would most definitely recommend anyone and everyone who are interested in the educational plight of inner city children to support IT’S TIME. It is a marvelous organization and I have the utmost most respect and appreciation for it.

I was very impressed with the attentiveness and curiosity of the students. The instructors made certain that the subject matters were presented in an effective and professional manner. The class room environment was without question conducive to the children being motivated to learn. The program’s curriculum stressed areas of learning that are important in the maturation of these youngsters. They are at a very critical time in their lives and a program like IT’S TIME gives them the direction and skills to become the productive, self-assured, educated adults from whom future leaders will emerge. A program like this is important and long overdue: hopefully it will find support to insure its growth.

I have just started as a volunteer for IT'S TIME, and am impressed with the scope and depth of the program. After participating in the first session this year, I am amazed at the excitement and receptiveness displayed by the students towards topics such as the stock market. I am looking forward to engaging IT'S TIME students in what will be an edifying experience for all involved.

Although many organizations claim they can enrich the lives of inner-city youth, I witnessed first hand, the impact IT'S TIME, has and is making on its participants. From the excitement and anticipation exhibited when arriving for instruction, early on a Saturday morning, to the enthusiasm displayed three hours later during (yet another) speaker's presentation, the students of IT'S TIME, were fully engaged. Not only that, but their ability to clearly articulate what they had already learned and how it would help them be successful in the future, was evidence of the sound methods being used to encourage, educate, and inspire these most malleable young minds. I believe the "graduates" of IT'S TIME, will become the game-changers in a society where becoming essential will be the new rule of success!

I am the volunteer program manager for a mentoring group for students in grades 5-12. I have watched the program grow and referred students and parents to the program. I have reviewed the curriculum and it is relevant and challenging for students. It also provides a sense of accomplishment at the end of the term.

I’m a parent of a student in the IT’STIME program and a BIG supporter. I stand by what this program instills in today’s youth. The financial piece is a wonderful part to the program. Another huge plus is the public speaking component. The writing and reading of famous speeches and/or poems have boost my child’s confidence and allowed her grades in ELA (English Language Arts) to climb to an A. IT’S TIME also has a friendly atmosphere and encourages the youth to want to learn and do their best. Not to mention the great incentives they hand out to the youth during the sessions. Special thank you to Ms Zalenda and Mr. Keith Job well done!!
