I have had ESP in my classroom and a part of our Relationships Unit for Healthful Living for the past 5 years. It is always enlightening to my students as they gain knowledge and practical understanding of good decision making. They absorb how costly it is to raise a child and they see the frustrating portion that can be a part of rearing a child. In light of this, they set up strategies to make good decisions so that they can meet their goals and have a family when they are ready for that chapter of their life. I appreciate all who support this program so that they can continue reaching our teens with such good guidance

I am so thankful that Randi brings ESP to my son's high school! I think it fills a void that few have even acknowledged. Somehow we expect to break cycles of poverty and child abuse with academic and character education alone. Randi has recognized that we have to teach kids about what strong families look like and to nurture their dreams of a better life. Then, by showing them they have control over their destinies by the decisions they make, she gives them a chance. I wish her program could be part of every high school curriculum in the country.

As a graduate student for East Carolina University studying Health Education and Promotion, I selected ESP to do my course long research project on. I knew what a wonderful person Randi was and what her nonprofit was up to before the experience, but after I learned the ins and outs of her goals, motivations, and work ethnic, I can without a doubt say this organization is life changing and will continue to make an impact! I encourage anyone interested to get involved to see how this organization is making beneficial impacts for this generation, as well as, the next.
