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.

“Because every child deserves a chance!”

There’s nothing better than seeing a child’s face light up with joy when they learn something new or when they have accomplished a task they never thought they would. Working with these kids have changed the way I looked at life. They are filled with hope and are genuinely excited each and every week. It makes my heart melt when these kids run up to the tutors and greet them with a warm embrace every Saturday.

I absolutely love volunteering at Next Generation Focus! ☺

All of the tutors and staff have such great big hearts! This program is filled with dedication. The staff and tutors’ dedication to the kids helps them grow and succeed in not only school, but life as well. NGF benefits the educational aspect of the child’s life, and also allows us, the tutors, to connect to the children personally and make them feel welcomed. They begin to feel confident and want to accomplish all of their dreams and goals.

I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful program. I feel like I have made a difference in my community. It also drives me to be a better person everyday because I know these kids are looking up to the tutors. I want to be a good role model to them.

“If you are given a chance to be a role model, I think you should always take it, because you can influence a person's life in a positive light, and that's what I want to do. That's what it's all about.”

I constantly talk about Next Generation Focus to everyone that I meet and I even invite my friends to help volunteer every Saturday.

I truly believe in this program and I feel that Next Generation Focus needs more recognition in our community.

This is a wonderful program. This is my first year with NGF and I am so proud to be part of this program. I feel that this program is going to allow me to make such a difference in my community. There are so many under privilege kids needing help in areas such as math, science, and reading, and this program allows them to get the help they need.

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

increase the number of days of this program. It is sad that this program can only function one day a week.

Not only has this organization bettered our community but it has bettered me as a person. This is my second year volunteering with Next Generation Focus and I plan to continue volunteering through college and hopefully after. This program has helped so many struggling young children and given me the opportunity to become close with these kids. NGF has become such an important part of my life and I hope to continue to see it grow in our community and beyond.
