The experience that i have had at Next Generation Focus has changed me in a way I cant explain. Every Saturday I look forward to coming to Grace Chapel and working with my students. These students here struggle and its our job to help them and make learning fun. You come to the desired location and work with these kids for 2 hours. We work on math, writing, reading, and math. Its great when a student smiles when they finally get something. Like the light bulb goes off. It makes you happy to know that you can help people grow in a way that they might not have known they could. Being dyslexic, I have found strategies that help me learn and so i have other strategies that might help others. For instance, I have worked with two special needs people while here at NGF, when I first started working with these students, it was hard to get them motivated to work. For each student, I had t find something that got them motivated to do something whether it was math , writing, or reading. For my current student, I reward him for working really hard by making him a shriky dink. For example, he wrote an awesome story about Pokemon and even finished it up at home. Some weeks are better than others but the tutors always find a way to help their students get motivated and have a fun time too. New tutors that come have the opportunity to share their strategies and tips because not one thing works for everyone. Next Generation Focus is a great non profit organization that I am so happy I am a part of.

NGF holds such a special place in my heart. Every time I come here, I feel like the kids are the ones teaching me to be a better person, not the other way around. I love the look of excited pride they make whenever they finally figure out a problem. Every kid is so funny, sweet, and overall just amazing in their own special way. I would not miss NGF for the world; this non-profit really makes a difference in their students' lives.

This organization is truly out to help the children. We not only teach them the skills they will need to pass their classes at school, but also beneficial life lessons that they will carry their entire lives. Altogether, we celebrate all their successes and learn from all their failures while encouraging exploration of the world around them to help them reach their full potential.

We have had the blessing of hosting NGF at Norcross for the past 2 1/2 years. This ministry has been a blessing to so many children and families in our neighborhood who are struggling with school and unable to afford private tutors.

Seeing the glow on students faces as they become more confident in their studies and see there grades climb upward has been awesome!

Amy and her staff are amazing in how they are able to individualize the needs of each student. This program has had a huge impact for the students and families in our area.

For the past year I’ve volunteered with NGF in Norcross area. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Seeing how eager they are to learn new things and how their face lights up when they finally get it is priceless. We all work together to make sure that the environment is upbeat and loving. I am proud to be part of this organization and giving back to the community I grew up in.

I started my first experience in working with NGF this past summer, and it has enhanced my perspective on dealing with not only children, but others in general. Helping the kids with anything from arts and crafts to mathematics is indubitably a rewarding and fulfilling experience for me. I look forward to creating opportunities within this organization and excited to meet new people.

I direct a Next Generation Focus SmarterMe homework club at our local church. We help students complete their homework for the week and practice their math and reading skills. I feel the children greatly benefit from the casual and social environment. Our volunteers are patient and look forward to spending time each week with the students.

I am a volunteer with Next Generation Focus and have been for over four years. NGF gives help to children that are struggling with their math, science and reading. Sometimes they get one on one tutoring. The tutors are enthusiast and are eager to help the children learn and catch up where they are behind. This non-profit is so important because children are our future!

I have been volunteering with NGF since the summer of my junior year, and it easily one of the most valuable experiences of my high school career. The students tutored by NGF need the academic support provided by the dedicated volunteers and are truly willing to learn. Helping a child struggle through a task and seeing them excel is beyond humbling. NGF is full of passionate and driven people who really make a difference in the lives of children in the community by giving them the tools and support they need to succeed.

NGF is an amazing opportunity for students to get the help they need to succeed. Individual assessments, individual lesson plans and one on one tutoring set this program apart from others. These children might get lost in the numbers without the extra attention they get at NGF.
