I was introduced to the Kids Excel Educational Program (KEEP) in early 2008. Since then, I have been volunteering on a weekly basis as an Assistant Teacher working directly with 4th graders of selected schools within the El Paso School district. Having been able to work directly with the Kids Excel children and staff has been a great and wonderful experience. The program stresses: work hard, never give up, and believe in your personal best. I have seen many children blossom under this program thanks to the dedication of the KEEP staff and the support of the teachers. The KEEP children learn to work in a team, to accept (more) responsibilities and to push themselves beyond their “comfort zones”. The KEEP program is very needed in El Paso which – as a border town – faces many challenges. Education is key in the development of the future leaders of El Paso and KEEP is a great supporter of this cause.
