I like that they provide summer school for these kids at no cost because there are a lot of us that can't afford it. My daughter loves this program and I like that it's not just academic but it's a lot of interactions with the other kids because going into middle-school is hard enough. Giving them this opportunity to move on into high school with a little bit more than most kids have behind them..confidence...how to deal with things a little bit better...how they're talking about college now so it's not just us running our mouths, it's them. It's teaching them ways that they can apply for colleges and scholarships and what they have to do. She loves it. And I pick up two other kids every day and they love it and I get a report every day.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
they have a parent program now. We were able to learn how to communicate with our kids and what to expect. The thing I really like about it is I've been with most of these kids since kindergarden so we're all kind of doing it together. At the end, they had the kids come so we had a day when we were in there with the kids but that and...it's just very positive. There's kids up here being crappy but they don't allow it as opposed to school where they sometimes allow it. They let you know how you're going to behave and they're correcting your behavior...
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
