NEW HORIZONS OF SOUTHWEST OF FLORIDA INC
September 10, 2014

Sometimes we forget the true joys in life. Monday, upon my return to New Horizons of SWFL to begin my seventh season of tutoring, I was immediately reminded of the satisfaction and joy received from the eager and grateful young students as they learn to overcome fear and shyness and gain confidence in learning new skills. Volunteer tutors can and do make a difference in the lives of young children.

NEW HORIZONS OF SOUTHWEST OF FLORIDA INC
July 15, 2013

Moving to Florida as a full time resident in 2007, I decided that I needed to do two things: join a church and get involved in the local community. Attending church, I heard about the after school tutoring program, "Super Kids Club", that New Horizons offers to local "at-risk" kids, began volunteering in 2008 and have never "looked back". What a joyful and fulfilling experience to help our most vulnerable youngsters to learn to read, to master multiplication tables, to watch them succeed in middle school and to eventually go on to graduate from high school! Sharing my experience with friends and neighbors has helped ignite enthusiasm in my community to support this organization through participation in volunteering, providing after school snacks, offering financial support and participating in fundraising events. The opportunities to support this organization are "multi-dimensional".....seasonal or year-round.....give of your time or make a donation. Each day I volunteer I see positive results and feel that I have found my "mission".
