When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I started looking for an organization to volunter, I wanted a program that made a difference for the people in my community... and this programs does that. It gives the parents valuable tools to navigate the school system in a way that a parent ends up being more proactive in their childrens' education and it gives them resources to encourage and help their children to attain higher education. At the end when you get the parents involved and they understand their responsibilty and power to overcome challenges as a family that they may be presented with, you build a better student, school and a community. This is a program that truly makes a difference.

If I had to make any changes it would be, to have this program available to all the parents everywhere.
