I couldn’t agree more with the reviews previously posted. Because of the effort put forth by our students, staff, and supporters, we will continue to grow and accomplish our mission. I am proud to be a part of an organization whose dedication, determination, and concern for follow citizens is exhibited on a daily basis.
My favorite classes are math and computer skills. I’m learning a lot about computers and I have my own email.
Being in this program is really fun. I learn about math and reading. I have fun playing the games. My favorite thing is art. I like to draw and they have contests. I would like my program better if my friends had it too. The people are nice.
I love the challenging minds series. Some of the challenges are scheduled and some are pop-ups. I highly recommend them to anyone who likes art or needs to develop their computer skills. I include my kids whenever I can.
This nonprofit will be a savings grace to many. The part I appreciate the most is the technology program. Clients can earn essential resources according to their participation levels. To me, that is a major motivator, an incentive for individuals, especially adults, to finally commit to learning, to get their GED, to take development classes.
I enjoy my work with Don’t Forget the Kids. The founders/staff are very forward-thinking and willing to try new technology. I particularly like the DFTK Network – a private area of their site where clients communicate, check email, and interact with other clients and staff members.
With all the recent talk about problems with the American schools and our future leaders, I felt inclined to make a statement about this nonprofit. What impressed me enough to donate was their insight. That’s not to say they totally saw this coming but they’ve done their research and understand the problems many low-income Americans face. By removing the problems or making a “work around,” they are enabling people to succeed. They realize that technology must be included in any successful education solution and they are one of the very few to offer such a program.
I like the program and think I will stick with it. I tried before to do it in town but I don’t have a car. I took the bus when I could but I got behind and quit. I want to get a good job when I finish this.
I take classes online. I like them but what I like best is I don't have to find a ride to get there. I don't miss any classes.
Don't Forget The Kids is a visionary charity, who has outstanding and dedicated Board Members and staff. They realize that America's future success is dependent on increasing the educational level of all its citzens. The United States educational system and student performance is declining. DFTK has concluded that a new, creative and innovative approach to education is what is needed to "right the ship" and allow the US to compete with other industrialized nations. They realize that utilizing technology in an educational environment is the key to America's future success. The online education programs that I was selected to test are exceptional. Although these educational programs are very challenging, they are presented in a entertaining manner, which is conducive to comprehension and retention of the material being presented. Don't Forget The Kids is the charity that will help lead America out of the Dark Ages of Education and into the 21st Century.
I believe in this organization's ability to bridge gaps in education. I was one of several volunteers selected to test & review their courses. They have partnered with very successful companies to provide high quality content. The courses are interesting, informative, and very entertaining! When the student is enjoying the program, actually being entertained by humorous videos and games, they retain the lesson and learning is effortless.
