I have been working as an advocate for students with learning disabilities for several years and this organization (PEN) has the best and most holistic approach. Their outreach to the student community offers them opportunities and a community that truly empower them and has made a significant impact on their self esteem and outlook for success in school as well as in life. Their work to educate and connect parents and teachers is the missing link that most other organizations ignore and that is why I have chosen to volunteer my time with this group. They will be the cornerstone and model for all other groups to follow in the years ahead as our movement grows.

Expand their SAFE Voices group to include multiple chapters throughout the country to give all students who learn differently a voice and supportive community.
