I am proud to say that Cooper City High's FFEA group will begin their fourth year mentoring students at Embassy Lakes Elementary. The materials are abundant, and the support staff (Heather)is efficent and helpful.A greater variety of books would be appreciated by my returning mentors!:) The program has enriched my high school mentors, and allowed them to earn valuable community service hours. For many it has provided career exploration. It has also provided individualized instruction that surely has increased the elementary students love of books, self esteem, and reading skills.Our program is fortunate to have an exceptional supportive partnership. Embassy's Principal, Mr Becker, encouraged the program by providing space, and a wonderfully talented and compassionate reading specialist,(Cheryl Retchin), to assist with identification of mentees, paperwork, and supervision!! The teamwork between the schools has made it an exceptional program!!

In 2001, I began mentoring youth at local schools because of the outreach made through the Florida Mentoring Partnership, an effort now managed by the Volunteer USA Foundation. To this day, I continue to see the oustanding strides being made by the programs this organization offers. Whether it's serving teens and youth through their Teen Trendsetters Reading Mentors program, or serving families and their children through their many literacy efforts, I know for a fact Volunteer USA is making a difference in many lives.

I think this is a wonderful program for both sides the mentors and the mentees. The young high school aged children learning about helping others through volunteering their time and the children that are receiving the help from their mentors. It is a win-win situation for both sets of children. It takes a lot of people volunteering to make these non-profits work and I think this is a wonderful program we have in our community!!!
