Review for FreshMinistries, Inc., Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a past mentor with Freshministries I was blessed with the opportunity to work with great people and help great kids. Michael Bryant and Vanessa Boyer were excellent mentors to me which I believe contributed to my success as a mentor to others. I was assigned 6 young girls and boys during my tenure with Freshministries. With my group of kids we did activities that range from taking tours of the downtown jail on E Adams St. to visiting the driving range at First Tee of Jacksonville on Golfair Blvd. Today I still remain in contact with some of the young adults who have gone from Project Housing living to College dorms and corporate offices. I am extremely proud to have been apart of Freshministries. The initiatives that are available are absolutely amazing and I hope that the business of Freshministries will continue to thrive and positively affect the lives of everyone that encounters this great organization.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the growth of the kids that came out of this program.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind and welcoming.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

transport all of the under privileged kids to several colleges and universities in the area to show them that there is something bigger outside of their normal environment.

Ways to make it better...

more parents had the opportunity to be involved.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

keeping young kids interested in the programs that Freshministries has to offer.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Freshministries should continue doing such a great work in the community.
