Tell your story here and help others understand this charity What a timely organization. The challenges facing our youngsters not only within the community but globally, make initiatives like IT’S TIME a most relevant program. Its mission to nurture middle school students in Washington DC to someday assume roles of civic leadership through the syllabus outlined has profound and broad implications. The mission of IT’S TIME to provide the students with the tools and skills to be competitive, dynamic, articulate and farsighted is a goal unquestionably at the core of excellence our educational systems wishes to achieve. With support and encouragement of its staff and volunteers, this marvelous organization will certainly provide a valuable adjunct to the DC school system. I am unabashedly a cheerleader for IT’S TIME and hope through exposure via outlets like Great NonProfit its outreach can be broadened.

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 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.

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!!

I gave a Saturday presentation to the kids about the stock market, and was impressed by their understanding, attentiveness, and interest -- hallmarks I attribute to the quality of the It's Time program in general. It wouldn't seem easy to get middle-school kids to focus on extracurricular learning on the weekends, but It's Time does it -- and does it well.

It's Time DC is a dynamic organization committed to financial literacy. The staff and volunteers are both impressive and relentless.

This is an awesome program that caters to the needs of children and teenagers as they take their academic journey through our school system. The program really strives to bring in people who can have positive influences on the students and help them make positive decisions in the future. I was impressed by the intelligence level of the students in this program, their outgoing personalities and all the questions with which they bombarded me. I was glad to be able to share part of my life and my career in order to positively influence and impact the students.

Broaden their scope, ensure it is inclusive of all students. I will strive to make this a required activity for students or at least an activity that earns them some credits.
