“Education is the foundation of our lives, and quality should not be determined by location or ability to pay. Our programs attempt to bridge the educational gap that exists between different schools and empower students to succeed, and I wanted to be a part of that.”

“I have always loved working with kids, so I emailed Dr. Coble my freshman year to see if there were any opportunities where I could help. Now I am allowed the chance to make a difference everyday by teaching science and math while helping lessen the 2nd to 3rd grade reading gap that is seen in a lot of Georgia schools.”
