Review for BONDING AGAINST ADVERSITY INC , Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a volunteer in BAA's Dropout Prevention program. Being in this role has made me see the real value of BAA. Many children are benefiting by having mentors to go to with their school work and sometimes with their personal problems. As mentors we provide guidance to the students that will benefit them educationally and in every other aspect of their lives. Having someone to go to at the age of the students that are mentored in the BAA program is a great advantage to them not only in the moment but definitely in the future.
