I commend this organization on their professionalism in general and their personal commitment to making Florida a better place for our Youth. The Organization directly impacts both very young children and high school students. High scool students get a tast of giving back to the community by mentoring children that have difficulty reading, and the young children benefit from positive role models. It is a real win-win for Florida!

As a Parent and teacher, I saw our daughter, Rebecca, along with her friends, do a terrific service for our neighborhood elementary school third graders. These were the students struggling in Reading and not meeting the FCAT scores. She was a part of this program for four years and many of the Parents of those students thanked her for her efforts.

The Great!

My daughter is in high school and has been the lead teen for this great mentoring program. I have seen her grow from the experience. She loves helping her young mentee and understands she is his role model. She is excited to continue this volunteer activity during her senior year. Good work teens and Volunteer USA!

Volunteer USA Foundation sponsors the Teen Trendsetters Reading Mentors Program. They have over 110 programs in Florida high schools, where teens are trained to mentor elementary students struggling with their reading skills. This helps both the elementary students and the high school students. In the elementary students, improved reading will translate into better academic performance and self-esteem. For the high school students, it may foster interest in careers in teaching and public service. My niece participated in this program and had very positive things to say about her experience.

The Great!

Volunteer USA is an impressive,well organized nonprofit making a difference in the lives of elementary children struggling with reading/ reading below grade level with its Teen Trendsetters Reading Mentors program. Hundreds of high schools provide volunteers to serve as reading mentors - meaning these teen volunteers not only provide valuable tutoring they benefit by experiencing the joy and satisfaction of being a volunteer and giving back to one's community (a wonderful starting point for potentially a lifetime of volunteer work).

The Great!

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

the teens who serve as volunteers. So much so that I have children who are almost old enough to participate and plan to do so!

More feedback...

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

the connection between the teen and their student. Both benefit on tremendous levels.

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

"movers and shakers!" They are polished professionals that know how to get things done and are a pleasure to interact with on any issue!

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

change the elemtary education world - as well as the high school teen world all while making a positive impact on the future!!!!!!!!!
