My twins entered into Program Believe’s after school program the summer after Kindergarten. One of them was stronger than the other in reading but neither were performing as good as they should have been.
After an intense summer with the teachers and staff at Program Believe they were ready for First Grade at a near by elementary school. I had communicated my concerns with the teachers and we all worked together to address them. Ms. Kay Horne would even pick the boys up from school and bring them to the center. They improved so much through their First Grade year- then COVID 19.
PB was able to pivot their program of work to a virtual environment, even providing packets of work on a weekly basis via a drive through process.
PB also provided nutritional support as well as an alternative to the traditional learning environment.
This year, the twins are in person and at a different elementary school and they haven’t had any problems. The after school teachers (Beverly and Mitchell) provide emotional support to the twins as this has been a tough year for everyone involved.
Lastly, the twins lost their grandmother last year and for me, PB was the one activity that remained a constant in their life during that time.
Program Believe has a small but mighty staff that will move mountain for each other, the parents and the children under their leadership.

In my case, with the little time that I have, the program allows me to attend classes even though I don't speak English fluently, I already understand a conversation and let myself be understood, I can place an order at a restaurant, go shopping alone without depending on my husband and even getting my driver's license, for me believes it is a great help to the Hispanic Community for which I am very grateful. Personally, Maty has helped her a lot both socially and at school, the believe program provides us with a space where We have the confidence to leave our children, not to take care of them, but to develop and reinforce the skills for their development in the case of Maty, she is an only child, and the program helps them reinforce this part by sharing with other children at the same time. you are learning while experimenting good things.
Program Believe has been and still is very helpful, friendly and welcoming to me and people of all ages. They are very authentic to people such as myself and to others that need help to reach their educational goals and to become better. I absolutely love the people and the vibe, they help each other and feel like family.
