The GreenHouse is an amazing community center that serves families by focusing on the educational, leadership and developmental potential of the children. The GreenHouse offers afterschool tutoring for through 12th grade, evneing "youth group" for the 5th grader through the teens, a leadership development program for the teens, and 2:1 mentoring for 5-12 graders.
What sold me on the GreenHouse is the love the students have for the place and it's people. they love the field trips to experience snow for the first time, or to go camping for the first time, or to go ice skating on an outside rink; but they love more how the GreenHouse makes them feel. They light up when they arrive and hate it when programs end.
I support the GreenHouse because I believe it is a fiscally-responsible organization that truly cares for children and manages to produce educational results.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
-raising student's reading fluency rates.
-increasing student's memory math skills.
-creating regular opportunities for parent-teacher-agency communication.
-student in the leadership program presenting to City Council and collaborating on projects.
