How Your Donation Is Used
“Pete” started coming to one of our High Hopes Afterschool Programs at the beginning of the 2012 school year. He arrived as most new kids do, shy and reserved. It didn’t take long for Pete come out of his shell, but the counselors quickly realized that Pete was struggling in school. On his first report card, counselors saw Pete was doing poorly in all of his classes.
Realizing that more action needed to be taken to improve his grades, the site director implemented an aggressive tutoring program. They even went so far as to stay later after work to help Pete with school projects. Literally, within weeks Pete’s grades began to rise to an acceptable level. Pete’s confidence in his school work was evident as well. He would come to the center eager to learn and improve his grades even more.
Because of the counselors tutoring program, Pete made the all A/B’s honor roll last 9 weeks and is striving toward his goal of making the all A’s honor roll the next 9 weeks.
