I am happy the organization made tutoring services available in Union county. So many are turning to drugs and crime because they can't get jobs to support their family, not realizing that a better education is what is needed to get jobs. I know a young man who took advantage of the one-on-one tutoring and now that he wants to learn and thinks someone cares about him he is also trying to change his life of drug abuse.
