Parent Shout-Outs:

“My daughter loved the kids and they loved her!  The daily stories were fantastic.  Seeing her grow as a person was the best part of this experience for me.  Learning that she is able to work and be an effective communicator was the best part of her experience for me.  All of the smiles, hugs and kind words from the kids made the experience worth every minute for her!”

"My son loves to work with children and wants to continue as a counselor going forward. This program gave him insight and proved to him that he was making a impact. As a CIT he worked with and helped children that were having difficulty working and playing with other children. It meant the world to him when one of the parents talked to him about the difference he made with their son!  This program instilled, and built, on his nature instinct and nurturing manner with others."
