Review for Jubilee Park & Community Center, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Jubilee since the beginning in 1997, a surprisingly short time to have made such a profound difference in a community. My favorite story, and most of my involvement has been with seeing one of the lowest performing schools, rated "Unacceptable" in Dallas Independent School District, rise in a few short years to two consecutive years of "Exemplary" ranking. A strong principal of eight years, an excellent Educational Coordinator and committed faculty have been the critical pieces in this amazing turnaround. But Jubilee tutors -- 80 strong -- who visit the school every week can legitimately share in the success. With individualized encouragement and support, Roberts students have surprised even themselves with what they can accomplish!

Role:  Volunteer & As Co-Chair of the Jubilee Education Task Force, I help to supervise the tutoring program.
