As a new member of the NSTS community, I like the people, games, and food. I am learning to be more patient. Staff are teaching me that. They ask me what I want out of the program, and I tell them.

Because of Next Step To Success, I learned that I can get scholarships to college. I am becoming more open minded because of the program.

What I like best about Next Step to Success are the interactions with the staff, communications, and the field trips. They make me feel welcome and that I belong here. I am learning to have a Growth Mindset. I know that I can do better, I will do better (in school), and I can study to do better.

I like the people I have met, especially the staff. They are really outgoing. I came for the summer program and now I am in the after school program.

I like the games, the staff, and I like the people I have met. I have learned that I should be myself and be confident in everything I do.

My daughter enjoys that she gets help with homework. She also likes having a chance to talk to other kids that share the same things in common as she does. I enjoy the overall socialization component in a safe atmosphere. I'm grateful she gets exposure to an environment that stresses the importance of a growth mindset, entrepreneurial thinking, and character building. I’m also happy she will be able to participate in field trips with her kids in her age group. Lastly, snacks and dinner are definitely an added benefit. Thank you for your support.
