I've experienced the valuable learning sessions provided by this organization in helping to develop early childhood reading. They teach parents techiniques for working with their child to develop reading skills. Their learning kits have the simplest of tools but keep you focused on learning how to do things in a creative way.

I'm active on many youth fronts in Central Florida, and recently had a chance to see their president announce a new program that will be matching foster youth with an adult mentor. What an amazing program and I can't wait to see it grow and expand.

watching the self esteem of the High School Students, who are mentoring 3rd graders, grow as they went thru the program was incredible... Not only did Teen Trendsetters help 3rd grade students improve their reading skills, it built confidence in the leaders of tomorrow.
