Review for FOUNDATION FOR STUDENTS RISING ABOVE, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Students Rising Above (SRA) is a wonderful program that seeks to aid high school students who show academic talent but who come from family backgrounds that might otherwise prohibit them from reaching to, getting into, and affording college. As a mentor I spend quality time with my student and present myself as a role model for him or her. We do fun activities together and I encourage a friendship between us that allows him or her to feel as though they can come to me with issues or questions. They are aided in college prep and college funding. Its an amazing program I'm proud to be a part of.
