What are Volunteers Saying?

“I feel that the whole concept of the program is great in that it inspires the students to do their best and be the best they can be. So often kids are recognized for what they do wrong. It is great to see their faces full of smiles and receive hugs and cards for recognizing and rewarding them for doing something good.”

“While our goal as a company was to put our thumb print on Partnership 4 Kids, the reality is the children have left their handprints on our hearts.”

“You do these kinds of things because you want to give back, but you get something in return too. The first time I had one of my mentees smile at me this year, I thought that was a huge breakthrough. You must be patient, and understand the dynamics of young people. There are very rewarding experiences.”
