Review for Family Resources For Education & Empowerment Inc, Shreveport, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Family Resorces forEducation and Empowerment has lived up to its name and it's mission to empower,educate and mentor one family, one youth at a time. In the last three years I have had the pleasure to work with board members, staff and volunteers to build the structure of this organization and the programs they offer the community. The MENTORSHIP and LEADERSHIP program The School of Greatness which is offered after school for High School and Middle School students has been life changing for the students and the volunteers. The School of Greatness provides group MENTORSHIP on 4guiding topics: I know who I am, I know the potential I possess, I know where I am going, and I know how to get there. through Education,Inspiration and Dedication. The program provides a support system 5months out of the school year for students and stays with the students to insure graduation, and continued education in College,Military or Technical Careers. Summer mentoring programs are also offered in Literacy,Gardening and The Arts. Family Resources provides enrichment workshops for building strong marriages and families. The long term strategic plans for this nonprofit is creative and filled with promise. I am honored to be apart of seeing real advancement in the lives of at-risk youth and families.
