Review for Valle del Sol, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a teenager in high school, and before I started going to Valle del Sol for help, I was getting into trouble at school, staying out late and being disrespectful. After working with counselors from Valle del Sol, who visited my family at our home and worked with me at school, there has been a big change in my outlook. I am now involved in student government at school, love being involved with the drama class, enjoy reading and am hoping to go into cosmetology or journalism after high school. Valle del Sol helped me build my self-esteem and helped me find out more about who I really am and who I want to be. They helped out with my anger management and taught me to deal with it in positive ways. I now write down my feelings, express myself through poetry or talk to someone I trust instead of acting out. I joined Valle del Sol's Youth Leadership program, which helped me to become a leader towards those who look up to me. My whole family says they have seen great changes in me and I have seen changes in them. We have more togetherness, more love and more pleasantness with each other. When we speak to each other there is no hostility, all that has gone away.

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

a way that has changed my life. The Youth Leadership Program helped me to develop my leadership skills and self confidence.
