I want America On Track and others to know how amazing it was to be a mentor. I really enjoyed my time with my mentee and am grateful programs like this exist to make communities come together and amicably advance. Thank you for this incredible experience.
The directors are passionate about these kids and want the best for them. That's what the future needs.
Dulce Arias delivered a great presentation to 3 of my junior classes at Westminster High School on Friday March 31st! She was very informative and engaging. My students learned about E-cigs, which is very relevant to their social circle and peer age group. I hope that the information Dulce shared will motivate my students to live a healthy and clean life!
Our Santa Ana community apartments had the great benefit of having Diane come out and give Nutrition classes to our residents. She was very professional, engaging, and knowledgeable. Her lessons were super fun and encouraged the residents to change their nutrition habits.
America on Track is a great organization dedicated to helping people improve their health through education. This is the 2nd year I have worked with them to help educate low income adults about their nutrition choices and how these choices can affect their health. Kris is an excellent presenter, he kept the clients engaged, brought informative hand outs and displays to give residents visual references about their bodies and health. Kris shared recipes with samples to show residents how they can prepare nutritious meals and snacks on a budget. The America on Track presentations have encouraged residents to eat healthier, try new things and make a more conscious effort in caring for their health. I look forward to bringing them back next year to present.
America on track has been a great addition to the programs at our facility. We have collaborated with this agency for the past few years and our families LOVE IT! The educational components along with the easy to understand recipes are always a hit! Considering we are one of the cities with the highest obesity rate in Orange County, I believe it is imperative that we assist the families by offering these types of classes. Diana is also great with the kids to the point that she knows most of them by name. We always look forward to hosting these wonderful programs at our facility and I believe America On Track is leading the way for our future by teaching them the basics of nutrition and giving them the hands on training to try these recipes with their families.
Kris and Diana were beyond exceptional with our class and teaching our students about nutrition. The students loved them and the foods they brought. We hope to see you next year!
We had Kris come in to do a series of nutritional classes for our students. He did a great job engaging with our students, and continuously changed the beat of his lectures to keep the kids interested. We also loved the food that he presented; like most kids, our students are averse to veggies, but Kris was able to make the food more appetizing. These classes were truly informative, and it was our pleasure to have Kris at our site.
I work with low income residents in Brea, CA. We had Kris come out and give Nutrition classes to the after school program youth. He was very professional, engaging, and knowledgeable on the subject. He kept the lessons fun for the kids and encouraged them to try the healthy food/snacks he provided for them. The students learned a lot and would talk about the lessons with me after he had left. His visuals and facts were critical to the kids' learning. He never made any of the kids feel bad for having a wrong answer, rather he talked it out with them until they arrived at a right answer by themselves. I would enthusiastically recommend America On Track (and especially Kris) to any programs looking to host Nutrition Classes.
Mentoring gives you the opportunity to facilitate someone’s life by sharing your knowledge learned through years of experience. In October 2014 I had the opportunity to come across America on Track and their Brighter Futures for Children of Prisoners Program. The moment I learned of the program it hit home and made me wish that there was a program such as this to get our family through our hard times growing up. Becoming a mentor to a 14 year old young lady has been an extremely rewarding experience for not just myself, but for my mentee as well.
We have had many opportunities to go to multiple Honda Center Events, compliments of America on Track. She didn’t even know who Shania Twain was, but we had an unbelievably great time at her concert!
My mentee and I have built a relationship that will definitely last a life-time. Thanks America on Track!
I have been a mentor at America On Track for the past year. Becoming a mentor at America On Track is one of the best decisions I have ever made!!! I look forward to meeting with my mentee every week. All together it has been such a rewarding experience. It's also great to know that I have a strong team of people at America On Track that are willing to help should the need arise. My favorite part about America On Track is that it offers parents education on nutrition. America On Track also encourages children to read by giving them free books that are age and reading level appropriate.
