#storiesandstrength everyday

Posted: 2/22/2018

We've compiled some quotes from volunteers, partners, parents, students, and friends that explain why they support LaAmistad and our #storiesandstrengtheveryday.

"In all of my years volunteering for different organizations, LaAmistad has been the most well run, positive, consistent program I have come across. The attention to detail, follow-up, volunteer information and concern for each student is phenomenal." 

"I was needed, felt a sense of accomplishment and had fun. That's a perfect Rx for a volunteer."

"Her involvement with LaAmistad has made her a better person and has enriched her life in so many ways." 

“The help students get with their homework cannot be over emphasized but I am convinced it is the personal relationships forged between students and the volunteers that is most important to the kids.”

“Thank you for the parenting classes. Thank you for the ESL classes. Thank you for helping our children.” 

“I really don’t know how to explain how easy LaAmistad has made life, English and most of all school for me. It’s not just me, my family as well. I don’t know how I would be making A’s in school if LaAmistad wouldn’t have given me a hand.” 

“Prior to LaAmistad, we had little or no outside support for our ESOL students.  They did not integrate well, and stayed primarily together.  Since LaAmistad began, their English language acquisition has been so much faster.”  

"Briar Vista students who attend tutorial at LaAmistad appreciate the volunteers who work with them. Students become more proficient in academics and gain confidence and skills to help them become more successful both in and out of the classroom. Briar Vista is grateful for the LaAmistad volunteers who generously dedicate their time and support." 

"I am THRILLED to report to you that Fernando passed ALL sections of the CRCT!  He has never passed ANY section...EVER...until now...and he passed them ALL this year!  My pride in him is through the roof!  Celebrate him and his success as much as possible and THANK YOU for all that you do and all that LaAmistad does for our students!"

"It has been a real pleasure to work with Animate this past month. I was very impressed with the quality of the program, the students' behavior and the teachers' energy. It was a wonderful experience and I am very grateful." 

"Our partnership with LaAmistad has allowed us to provide support and enrichment to the students and families that need it the most." 

"I guess it is time for a [summer] break for all of us, but I will miss the time at La Amistad."

"Thank you for making this happen for the kids at Lake Forest. They have my heart." 

"I was very impressed with the La Amistad program.  I have observed, during my visits that this program really cares about their students enrolled in the program." 

"La Amistad provides our students with an opportunity to extend their learning and develop meaningful relationships with volunteers. I have seen a difference in our students who have attended La Amistad, both academically and socially, and I look forward to our continued partnership!"

"If I was never apart of LaAmistad I would have never gone to Pace Academy. I can not express how thankful I am for all that you and LaAmistad have done for me."
