Review for Peninsula Bridge, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Georgina Ruiz and my daughter's name is Daisy Alvarado. She was in the Peninsula Bridge program last year, and this is her second year. I would like to write about the tremendous impact the Peninsula Bridge Program has had on my daughter's life. She was very happy while in the program and she really loved the ways the teachers interacted with her. The teachers and site director were very knowledgeable--very caring, loving, and kind. She learned a lot. I was amazed how she learned big words, like all the muscles in the body. She learned those words last year, but she still remembers them and uses them. She also could not wait to come back all through the year after she finished the program; she was always talking about coming back to the program. She was so excited to come back to the program that she couldn't even sleep the night before the first day. She also was really encouraged to improve, and got very motivated in her life after attending the program.

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

my daughter: her horizons were broadened by the program. She used to want to be a scientist; now she is thinking of being a doctor. She feels like she has options. Her grades have also improved since she started the program, and she now loves trying to always do better in school.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feeling that Daisy will be able to make it on her own.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, generous, knowledgeable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open more sites, upgrade to help kids throughout high school and not just middle school, provide more scholarships for students to transfer to the independent schools that the program operates out of if admitted, offer a parental education program to assist parents in learning how to make their children's educations as good as they can be and learn how to talk with teachers.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
