SMART is a really great help to those who love school and want to excel. As a student at SMART, I got to experience both a public elementary school and then the wonders of a private middle school. This change was drastic, but SMART was there to help in every way possible. They really connected with my family and were there for assistance. I was able to further my academic skills and talents in my middle school, and got all the support they could offer. I am always proud to tell my friends that I attended The SMART Program, and what it's about because without them, I would be in an entirely different place. As a junior in high school I did 70 hours of volunteer work at SMART to give back to the place that gave my peers and I so much. After my volunteer work, I got my first paid internship there which was also a great pleasure and experience. I am so happy that I got to give back to my community in some way. Now I am a senior in high school and I am continuously helping SMART out by being on the Alumni Advisory Board. They are a GREAT program, and the staff have such big hearts which makes the program all the more inviting.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my education and my life. They have helped me develop many academic skills I still use today, and they have allowed me to look at everything as an oppurtunity to excel.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
