Review for Foundation For Students Rising Above, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Beautiful organization. I love the mentorship aspect of SRA. You work closely with a senior and not only take them on excursions around the Bay Area, but also being them into your home and introduce them to your culture as well. My mentee became great friends with my daughter who attends a sister school. They had so much in common and even went to the same prom. The students come from varied backgrounds, but what they have in common is that their home life is not idea. These students have beat the odds and are graduating and doing amazing things. There is also a lot of support from the SRA staff; guiding you as a mentor, giving advice to the student and helping them with everything from college applications to housing.
