Review for Discovering Options, Saint Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a mentor with Discovering Options for almost 2 years now.
Their dedication to the community is invaluable to the kids and families they serve.
They help in so many different ways such as providing kids a place to go after school to learn something new, socialize with others, experience new things such as yoga, cooking, dancing, etc.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my being a mentor. I have taken my proteges to the movies, rollerskating, and the mall for the first time, spoken to her about the importance of staying in school and getting an education (as she gets suspended a lot!), encouraging her and helping her with school work, etc. She is being raised by a single mother with 5 other kids! So, getting individualized attention each week is something she looks forward to and enjoys.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to help it grow bigger that it can help more kids and families.

Role:  Volunteer & I have given rides to families to the grocery store, library, emergency room, etc. I have also .
