I had the pleasure of working with this foundation when it offered a mentoring program to students in middle school. I was surprised at the dedication and commitment this foundation afforded these students. They provided all the help and tools that was needed to supply the help where it was needed. We helped students that had a below average reading grade to get up to par so they could compete with other students. It is a known that if a student can read and comprehend what they are reading the battle is halfway won. Watt foundation spared no expenses when it came to helping our students. At the end of the school year all of our students reading grade scores improved.
JWATT goes over and beyond assisting our youth. They are excellent role models and treat kids as if they are their own.
JWATT stands strong in their desire to build up the next generation of leaders, and they do it with grace, passion and integrity. I am proud to be a donor to this amazing organization.
I am a past recipient of this foundation and it was absolutely life changing, the people who work with you are there for life and help you with the things that are best for you! I highly recommend this foundation to all seniors who are about to graduate!
The JWATT Foundation is a foundation that helps build a childs mind. They encourage children to go after their goals to better their future.
JWATT Foundation is the epitome of caring for children's education in the committee. It has been such a rewarding experience to not only serve with JWATT, but to also see the children we've impacted grow and excellent beyond what they thought they were only capable of. I am excited to see more and do more with JWATT Foundation. It truly is a foundation for the future.
While initially interested in the organization as a means to gain scholarships for school, I quickly realized that JWATT was so much more than that. From the very first meeting, It became apparent the amount of time and dedication the JWATT staff put into developing each of our activities and lectures. Seeing as how the participants were all graduating seniors, the organization made it a point to design each lesson around certain general ideas and concepts that would become increasingly more prevalent to us as we began our transition to adulthood. Of course, many of the topics involved financial literacy, money management, goal setting, career development, and many other typical concepts that one would be expected to learn from such an organization.
However, what makes JWATT stand out is the group's willingness to go out and expose us to a broader range of social concepts that most other organizations wouldn't dare to incorporate. Such concepts include social bias, injustice, poverty, and the various dangers of collegiate life that are rarely if ever discussed in a formal setting. To help expose us to these concepts, JWATT designed a variety of community service projects and other activities. Some events included visits to Gleaners Food Drive, the Ronald McDonald House, and the Christian Guidance Rehabilitation Center. By making it a point to incorporate these activities, JWATT was able to express the importance of pursuing our ambitions while working hard to help promote the betterment of society as a whole. My most memorable session from the program was the "Real Talk 101" panel where we had a group of guest speakers come and talk to us about their experiences as well as to impart meaningful wisdom and truly inspirational words of encouragement.
Through the efforts of the organization, I can honestly say that I have experienced exponential growth as an individual, as well as developed a better sense of community awareness. All the connections I have built through JWATT have become invaluable to me and I would highly recommend the JWATT organization and their program to any and everyone.
JWATT is a phenomenal nonprofit organization. Their focus is on preparing youth for life in college and adulthood, as well as teaching them how to give back to the community. I highly recommend the advancement of JWATT!
JWATT Foundation is a wonderful and extremely helpful organization that reaches out to the community. I have found this foundation to be genuine and one who really goes beyond and above to assist the youth and their educational endeavors. 5 stars to this organization!!!
JWATT is an excellent example of selfless dedication to educating our youth and developing future leaders.
