Excellent TEEN Choice provides quality seminars and programs in one of the most needed areas of our nation, the education and inspiration of our youth. The organization has combined community service and education in way that helps young people gain experience while learning to make more "excellent choices" currently and for their future. It is the teen's empowerment equivalent "to teaching a man to fish." The organization leadership has shown itself to be insightful, dedicated and committed to the success of every young life they touch. It has been my pleasure to both volunteer and donate contributions to ETC.
I have three teenagers that have been extremely Blessed by attending the ETC programs.
They have waked away from each session they have attending with a much greater understanding of how to set and meet goals in their life to be successful. They have enjoyed the knowledge and real talk they have heard from the diverse speakers sharing their own life experience and what it takes to accomplish life goals. This program is a success because of all the hard work and personal touch of Sharon Roberson-Jones
We are grateful for the drive she has for the youth to be successful.
ETC worked with students in my Summer and After School Program. ETC brought to the program loads of information, learning tools, confidence, trust and positive thinking attitudes. This in turn rubbed off onto the students creating better and more well rounded individuals.
Excellent Teen Choice provides great educational and fitness programs for the youth in our community. This non-profit program provides the youth of today with tools that will allow them to become the leaders of tomorrow!
Mrs. Richardson who is the cornerstone of this organization has allowed me to take my passion for sports and utilize it as a spring board for the fitness program that has been recently implemented as a part of this organization.
As a member of law enforcement I have certain knowledge and life experiences that can prove to be vital for the survival of the youth in our community. I thank her for allowing me to be apart of such a great organization that focuses on our youth.
As a board member and a responsible memeber of the community, my goal has been very simple; Do all I can to make a positive impact on the youth and the community I serve. Since conception, Excelent Teen Choice has truly been a vessel that has provided valuable services and memorable experiences for all including local municipalities, churches, colleges, high schools, youth organizations, parents and students.
Because of its policy to open the doors to all youth Excellent Teen Choice is making a very positive impact on all communities and I am delighted to be a part of this outstanding organization!
Being a member of ETC has been one of my most well worth experiences. ETC has taught me a lot about organization and team building. I glad to be a part of such an wonderful group and work with wonderful people. The kids that we reach out to are always greatful!
I have volunteered with ETC for the last two years and I have truly enjoyed the MADD CITY MONEY program. This program teaches students how to manage their money. It also teaches them the importance of having a plan for their lives. It causes them to take a realistic look at their future and adjust accordingly. They find out what it feels like to not have enough money to finish the month. I enjoy listening to them at the end of the day talk about changes they plan to make in their lives and career choices.
For the past 2 years, I have spoken at the CLEE conference which they created. I truly enjoyed the experience working with the youth. They were definitely motivated and active during each of the sessions. The youth in this organization motivated me to start my annual gala where I give back to nonprofits through my business Women Are Gamechangers LLC. This will be the second year I give a check to Excellent Teen Choice so they can continue the work they do in Texas and eventually a few more states. I have seen first hand the programs they offer are timely and relevant to today's youth and does prepare them for life after high school.
I have had the pleasure to serve the youth of Arlington by volunteering with Excellent Teen Choice on several occasions. All of the programs offered by this organization are relevant to the needs of the youth of Arlington to become successful leaders in our community and the world (i.e. money management, academic seminars, and service leading training, etc.).
I volunteered at the MADD City Money Event held by ETC. High school students learned how to budget money based on their pretend life circumstances. My niece is still talking about waiting to have children until after college and after marriage! She didn't like having to pay daycare and other expenses in the pretend city. I love the fact that ETC is always finding real life ways to teach teenagers how to be successful in life. They also inspire students to return and give testimonies to others. I try to support them every chance I get.
