"It has always been difficult for me to stay on task and focused at school, causing my grades to plummet. When I joined New Horizons, they helped me focus and made me realize the importance of getting better grades. I have gotten on the A/B honor roll and had perfect attendance many times since then."

"Because of New Horizons, my parents and I won't be frantically panicking about how I'm going to pay off college or technical school. They assisted me in applying for scholarships and due to this I have now obtained not one but two scholarships... These scholarships will contribute to being the first person in my family to follow their dream career."

"At first, I would hang out with people that did not have the best influence on me but as time went on, new staff like [Club Director] Mrs. Esther really had a big impact on me. I used to not care about school but she would sit down with me and talk about life. She helped me change my mindset."

"I have been attending New Horizons since I was in 6th grade. I keep coming because this is a place where I can go and ask for help when I need it. I am very shy but they have always been there when I needed them."

"I used to have trouble with my history classes due to the complex and specific words that are found in books, but thanks to help from volunteers I managed to understand, breaking down each class in a more understandable way."

"When I first started school, I struggled to read books and speak English well. I actually failed 1st grade because of this struggle. New Horizons saw this and would make me read a couple pages and ask me questions about what I read. Even though I hated doing this, it helped me in the long run and I am now an honor roll student. "
