My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for My Hero Project Inc, Laguna Beach, CA, USA
Being a part of My hero project has helped my students on different levels. On the personal level they made new friends. They learned about each other preferences, cultures, interests, hobbies. Mainly they had a chance to appreciate their fellow friends and to respect their customs and traditions. On the academic level I also recognized that the new information was transforming into new knowledge mainly on several language skills; reading, writing, use of English and listening. They all had been reinforced, practiced or learned. We have taken part on other fun projects related to cooking and world wide cuisine.
One of my students' dad passed away right after we had completed one of several participations on the My Hero project. Jaime told me that being a part of this project helped him not only to talk about his beloved father interests, hobbies and human traits but to cope with pain of such a lost; "sharing with other teenagers the importance of treasuring your family every second, of every day, for the rest of you lives, because you never know when you'll need to say goodbye ".
This project has enriched our lives in many ways both students and teachers. Long live the MY HERO project!
