Review for New Horizons of Southwest of Florida Inc, Naples, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served as a volunteer tutor for New Horizon's after school program. Also, I mentor two of their students, one through the Take Stock in Children Program and the other the STAMP program. Both students are gifted in their own ways, and no doubt successful due to their early involvement with New Horizon's program. They've been encouraged to be leaders and givers, with a strong community and high school commitment. New Horizon's programs work, as they are both practical and inspirational.

Review for THE FOUNDATION FOR LEE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS INC, Fort Myers, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience as a mentor for two students in the Foundation's Take Stock in Children and the STAMP programs has been overwhelmingly positive! My two students couldn't be more different, but so rewarding to work with. They are very aware of the benefit of the scholarship program and are intent in taking full advantage by attending college. They handle with grace the multiple demands of taking AP and Honors classes, while also participating in programs after school The support from the Foundation's staff has also been outstanding. Sheryl, the Mentor Coordinator, is accessible, knowledgeable, and deeply committed to the students' welfare. I find the program rewarding because I'm seeing the world in a new way from becoming close to my two high school students. I sing the program's high praise to all that express an interest in mentoring.
