This is the 2nd summer my daughter, Francesca, has been in this program; it is such a wonderful program. Francesca enjoyed every single day there and always tells me what she did at the program. She got the opportunity to explore into more areas than what we can provide to her at home. This summer, she was exposed to the subject of psychology for the first time and was so excited about it...I think she may have found another subject she really loves besides mathematics. Also new this summer was a parent education seminar which I thought was truly helpful. To top it all off, everything was provided for free! I feel very fortunate to have Francesca in this program and we look forwards to returning next summer!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that their program is enriching at the same time interesting. The students all seem to enjoy going everyday.

Ways to make it better...

perhaps there was an orientation for returning students (like the one for incoming 6th grades).

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not many heard of this program.

I like that they provide summer school for these kids at no cost because there are a lot of us that can't afford it. My daughter loves this program and I like that it's not just academic but it's a lot of interactions with the other kids because going into middle-school is hard enough. Giving them this opportunity to move on into high school with a little bit more than most kids have behind them..confidence...how to deal with things a little bit better...how they're talking about college now so it's not just us running our mouths, it's them. It's teaching them ways that they can apply for colleges and scholarships and what they have to do. She loves it. And I pick up two other kids every day and they love it and I get a report every day.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they have a parent program now. We were able to learn how to communicate with our kids and what to expect. The thing I really like about it is I've been with most of these kids since kindergarden so we're all kind of doing it together. At the end, they had the kids come so we had a day when we were in there with the kids but that and...it's just very positive. There's kids up here being crappy but they don't allow it as opposed to school where they sometimes allow it. They let you know how you're going to behave and they're correcting your behavior...

My name is Georgina Ruiz and my daughter's name is Daisy Alvarado. She was in the Peninsula Bridge program last year, and this is her second year. I would like to write about the tremendous impact the Peninsula Bridge Program has had on my daughter's life. She was very happy while in the program and she really loved the ways the teachers interacted with her. The teachers and site director were very knowledgeable--very caring, loving, and kind. She learned a lot. I was amazed how she learned big words, like all the muscles in the body. She learned those words last year, but she still remembers them and uses them. She also could not wait to come back all through the year after she finished the program; she was always talking about coming back to the program. She was so excited to come back to the program that she couldn't even sleep the night before the first day. She also was really encouraged to improve, and got very motivated in her life after attending the program.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daughter: her horizons were broadened by the program. She used to want to be a scientist; now she is thinking of being a doctor. She feels like she has options. Her grades have also improved since she started the program, and she now loves trying to always do better in school.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feeling that Daisy will be able to make it on her own.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, generous, knowledgeable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open more sites, upgrade to help kids throughout high school and not just middle school, provide more scholarships for students to transfer to the independent schools that the program operates out of if admitted, offer a parental education program to assist parents in learning how to make their children's educations as good as they can be and learn how to talk with teachers.
