I started volunteering with Next Generation Focus as a freshman in high school, and I am now currently in my senior year.

NGF has been such a great organization to volunteer for. They focus on education to help kids feel confident and poised to continue their education and potentially go to college. Amy is so caring and truly wants to enrich the kid’s lives and enhance the Norcross community.

I had no teaching experience (my background in business is HR and Payroll) but was retired and wanted to serve the community that is served by my Church. I felt I could help students with their reading homework and get to know them and theirContinue reading Barbara Kean | Board Member | 2018
