Student Impact Stories

"You can tell the staff members wanted to be at the program and help make an impact on the kids by sharing the knowledge they have with their Specialty. My son really loved all the arts and crafts that he made and was always excited to come home to share with us."

-Parent, Explore Next Door After School Program

"My child came home every day talking about concepts they discussed regarding our community, the environment and most importantly how we all need to think to help everyone feel heard and seen. She also talked about things that help her stay healthy like physical work, healthy eating and respecting different points of view. It was a great experience."

-Parent, Thrive Outside Summer Camp

"I liked that it opened our kids minds and let them experience things they may not have the chance to experience otherwise. I loved that they explored different cultures through food and art and I loved that the staff was so enthusiastic, warm and welcoming."

-Parent, Thrive Outside Summer Camp
