Education for Successful Parenting instructed me in my freshman health class, that impacted the decisions I make for the rest of my life. That summer I began volunteering for ESP and teaching what I learned to the community. Now as a senior in high school, I am interning at ESP.

Randi and Courtney were expert presentors at Millbrook HS. They reached hundreds of our students in a matter of just a few days. We continue to get positive feedback from students on the value of what they speak and interact about. One never knows what influence this will be to their lives as they move into adulthood.

Thank you for inviting us to return for a third year to educate the Millbrook students about family health! It is so rewarding to assist your teens in planning for strong families and to help them realize the far-reaching effects of their adolescent choices in health and relationships.

Our program has had ESP come to our 9th grade Healthful Living classes for 3 years. They have had amazing reviews from the attending 9th graders that not only is it informative, but interactive and information they can take away for life. We will continue to have this volunteer program visit our school site to prepare our students for a safe and effective future.

This program is INVALUABLE in terms of content for my students. I have a very diverse group but all have enjoyed and benefitted from the visits from this organization to our classroom. Student feedback after the visits is always extremely positive. Everyone should invite this group to their classroom to enhance the learning of their students!

Our program has collaborated with ESP for several years now offering workshop series to foster parents, caregivers, CASAs and their foster youth. Each time the evaluations are overwhelmingly positive and we frequently receive calls to know when the next one will be scheduled. Randi and her team are wonderful people to work with. If you have not attended a workshop yet, please find some time to attend as you would greatly benefit.

Helping foster youth learn how to prepare for and enjoy a healthy family is one of the most rewarding activities of our organization. We're delighted to support the important work of foster parents, guardians, and your program in meeting the many needs of foster youth.

I am a Health Teacher in a high school that has benefited from ESP's Programing. Each student in my class is required to write a reflection paper at the end of the health course about what they found most useful or memorable in class. Many of them chose to write about the ESP workshop that came to our school. This program encourages students to make thoughtful, informed, goal oriented decsions in regards to family. The curriculm is designed in a way that is extremely postive, and very engaging. It is a wonderful program for our school and our kids. I hope that it can be supported for years to come.
