Review for In The Gap Inc, Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In The Gap is such an amazing organization! God has truly blessed them and granted them favor with the different schools. That we have the ability to go into public elementary schools and teach the kids character is such a gift!
The atmosphere at In The Gap is so positive and encouraging, which is really helpful in creating an effective learning environment. The skills you learn at In The Gap can be used in everyday life, not just teaching in school. For example, finding the good in others and praising them for it. Instead of just seeing the bad or frustrating parts of a person, which is so easy to do, try to find the good in others. Then once you do, encourage them by saying how you noticed them doing this, helping someone out, speaking kindly, or showing a specific character quality. God opened my eyes and I saw how beat down the kids in these schools are. I was also able to see how just a few kind words encouraged kids to keep going.
It's so easy to call people out on the wrong things they do, but what about the good? Find the good in others and encourage them! You never know how much it might mean to them.
I recommend this organization to everyone!
