I have been a part of BearTrax for four years and it has really come to play a large role in my life. Throughout my many years with this program, I have had the opportunity to witness the tremendous impact that it has had on the children's academic and behavioral transformations, and even on the volunteers involved, as they gradually learn how to work with the children. Overall, this is a wonderful program and I believe that more people should hear about it!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

volunteering at Beartrax (at UC Berkeley).

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

extend the program to more schools and districts, preferably to more impoverished areas. During my first year with BearTrax, we worked with more children from low-income neighborhoods. Even though they were difficult to work with, they are the ones that I saw the largest transformations in.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I tutor children academically and athletically at BearTrax.
