I've been volunteering for Bea's Kids for five years. They do a great job of providing a safe place for kids to go after school to get help with their homework. Bea Salazar started it more than 20 years ago because she saw a need in her community. She's still very involved in the organization and the good it does for the Dallas, Farmers Branch, and Carrolton communities. They encourage kids to stay in school and give them the tools to help them succeed.

I've been volunteering with Bea's Kids for over five years. I've also served on the board for one year. I think it is a wonderful organization. Bea Salazar, the founder, is the most caring person I've ever met. The kids who come to Bea's Kids enjoy having a safe place to go after school and get help with their homework. They learn that someone other than their parents considers their education very important. They also learn that there are other people out there who care about them and will listen to them when they have problems. I started volunteering with Bea's Kids with my daughter for her service hours for school. My daughter is now away in college, but I still volunteer as much as I can.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I've volunteered as a tutor, helped with fundraisers and served on the board of directors.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find a way for them to have more money in the budget. There is so much more that could be done for these kids if they only had enough money to do it.
Volunteer & volunteer as a tutor.
