“What I liked about the program was that the kids got to work on real projects rather than just made-up scenarios which resulted in tangible benefits to the community. This allowed them to apply the skills they are learning in class to real-life settings which makes learning more fun and easier to understand. Giving to others in need and volunteering your time should be part of our everyday living and responsibility as good citizens.”
