Kids get the life lessons they need to succeed and be happy--and they get a safe place to call home after school.

WINGS does so much for each student involved in their programs-providing academic help, emotional support, dinner, and FUN! The WINGS leaders are fantastic and they meet the challenges of each day (of which there are many) with such enthusiasm and positivity.

Volunteering at WINGS each week lifts my spirits. Watching the social and academic progression of our WINGS kids proves that positive reinforcement about making good choices in a nurturing setting works!. At WINGS, we all soar!

There is so much positive energy at WINGS. The first thing that grabbed my attention was the sense of community that everyone shares. I honestly have not seen an after school program like this before. Everyone is having fun - even the staff. Definitely left an impression.

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

the kids they serve.

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

how organized and efficient they are, especially with volunteers.

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

knowledgeable and friendly. Easy to work with, for sure.

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

soar to the moon! With 10 million dollars, WINGS could help millions of kids get the life lessons they are missing out on at home. They would also get a safe, effective place to be after school. Wow - what a thought!
