Take A Look At What Some Of Our Bigs And Littles Have To Say About The Program!
“Overall, both students, in particularly one, gained a refreshed and more optimistic perspective on life that reflected in their attitudes towards school. They gained a greater sense of self, the worth of self, and enhanced their confidence in skills such as soccer. It was always a source of something good to look forward too from their point of view.”
“The positive interactions seemed to help ease stress and anxiety in their lives. This created space for healthier interactions with staff and peers. Really, this program is COMPLETELY AWESOME when seeing how positively it impacted the lives of these two young boys. Thank you very much! I would have loved to have seen several other boys have access to it as well.”
