Here’s what Megan Geren previously wrote to reflect her experience volunteering at Next Generation Focus:
“I am a first grade teacher in the same area that NGF serves. I have seen firsthand the impact that this organization is making on the community. They are working to help local schools reach struggling students. In addition to the academic support that they provide, they are also giving these students positive experiences. Students at NGF know that they are important and that they can succeed in school. The high school volunteers provide students with positive role models to encourage them to try their very best at school. I feel extremely blessed to be a part of such a phenomenal organization!”
Congratulations, Megan! We are so proud and happy to have you as part of our organization!
