This project expands the successful peer tutoring/mentoring model to three more communities so we can reach more kids.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Youth Peer Program has forever changed my...life. As a volunteer and now an assistant...I am more outgoing, my leadership skills have sharpened, and I am always keeping an open, accepting mind. This job made me more positive. I am on the right path to becoming a teacher and I am so grateful. No job has been more challenging yet SO rewarding in my life. I am thankful to have ever had the opportunity to work with such wonderful people for an amazing program."
