Would you recommend Take Stock in Children of Broward County?

Take Stock in Children is a great organization to volunteer with. The volunteer coordinators work with the schools to set up your initial meeting with your mentee. The program awards each mentee with a 2 year college scholarship. This program also gives the kids something to look forward to every week and also in their future. I recommend this program to everyone I meet.
