This is a tremendous non-profit. The schools are in great need for help and support. The First Priority Tri County group helps the schools by empowering students to lead and brings adults in for support. I recommend them to anyone and everyone!
This organization gives hope to children without reason to hope. It reaches out to all youth. I see this organization fulfilling the life of hope to all teens and younger children.
You cant put words to what First Priority does in the schools of eastern Kentucky. Bianca gets to eat a hot sausage biscuit every Friday morning because of FP- its the only time she gets to eat McDonalds, she said. Kelsie was devastated after her family suffered from a break-in- she had someone to comfort her and listen because of FP. Allyson had been the popular kid, attending all the high-school parties- now she leads the school in a positive way because of a speaker at FP. Jacob was lost but now he has found the One, True Savior because of an invitation given at FP. Huge impacts from individuals in FP who have a heart for the lost.
I've been involved with First Priority since early 2000. It's one of the most productive, positive, character-building programs I have seen used in school. It provides an avenue for community, church and school to combine resources, come together and IMPACT the lives of students. Students reaching students, encouraging each other to make postive life choices and have a POSITIVE impact in our schools and communities is the driving force behind FP Tri County. I wish every school took advantage of this resource for it's students.
I sponsored First Priority at South Laurel High School until I began teaching at another school. First Priority Tri-County is an amazing organization! It has grown and changed to reach out to the different student groups within schools as well as to the community. They are developing young people to become effective leaders, as well as reaching out to our communities and world.
Love this group! Not only does it give students a positive role to play in our school, but also encourages leadership and evangelism.
