I've been working with NGF for years and have seen so many excel far beyond expectations. This organization is unique in that it not only focuses on study skills, but also teaches the importance of giving back to the community. NGF provides an opportunity for kids to have fun while learning and boost their self esteem.

I have been volunteering at NGF for two years and i have never regretted waking up early on Saturdays to go and see the kids smiling faces. This organization creates family and friends in people that might not have any. This group has helped not only the kids by aiding them to learn in a more friendly enviroment then school, but also me. Whenever i see them score a good grade or understand something new i feel pride in the fact that i am helping them in the right direction. I would like to say our wonderful teaching methods are what did the trick to make them understand the material, but that would be a lie.
These kids simply nedded someone patient enough to push them in the right direction and help them when they stray from the path. Needless to say i love NGF

This is my first year with NGF and I have loved every minute that I have worked with these kids. It makes my day better knowing that I have helped them do their homework and understand something better. NGF is helping kids in school with school work and boast their confidence and i love seeing them grow. I feel like I am making a difference in these kids life and I love being able to work with them. NGF is helping these kids so much and they are doing a wonderful job!!

I have been a part of Next Generation Focus for alittle less than a year now and have loved every minute of it. NGF not only helps students who struggle receive help, but also help teens that volunteer become better leaders. This program has really helped me get out of my comfort level and aim higher. I was also involved in the set up of our new science program at NGF and am so humbled to have the opportunity to inspire other students in a subject I love very much. It is such a pleasure coming in and working with such wonderful children every week.

I began volunteering with Next Generation Focus back in 2010 and I instantly fell in love with the program. The program is 100% about the success of the children who are struggling in our local school systems. The system of dedicated teen and adult volunteers come together every week to make the most of every child's time, helping them in math and reading. Seeing the benefits that the students gain through the works of this program, I decided to change majors in order to focus on continuing the education of high school students who are performing below the national averages for their grade levels. Furthering the education of students who may have not gotten the same chances at success as others is one of the main focuses of this organization and the results are so amazing that it has become mine, as well!

I have recently had the privilege of volunteering with Next Generation Focus and would like to share my terrific experience. NGF provides tutoring for children who need a little extra help with reading and math. I have been deeply impressed with the dedication of all of the volunteers.

However, what is most striking is the high school tutors. They are amazing! Labor day weekend, we even had a couple of college students come back to help over their short break from their own studies. I came away from my Saturday morning with a profound sense of optimism not only because of the children who love to learn but because of these young adults who love to teach.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the program to more places.

NGF is a wonderful organization that helps to meet the needs of struggling readers in elementary school. I am a volunteer tutor and have the honor of providing extra literacy instruction to these precious children. The ability to read well has such a positive impact on a person’s life, and I feel so fortunate that I can help the children who attend NGF advance their reading skills. In addition to us providing reading instruction, we build relationships with them and show them how much we care about them and how important we believe each and every one of them is. I believe this is just as vital as helping to make them successful readers.
