Would you recommend 'Friends With A Better Plan" Community Action Program?

by Meghan O. (January 11, 2010)
I absolutely love everything about Friends!! My name is Meghan O and I am a graduate from Sumner High School (which is one of the schools that is blessed to have such a beautiful and loving after school program) and I was actively involved and I enjoyed everything about it! They provided my peers and I an outlet to have a sense of relief. No one was there to judge us for our actions, we could speak our mind. I was literally in heaven and was sad that it had to end when I graduated. Now, that's why I came back, only now I'm working on being that exceptional Group Facilitator to my students at Vashon High School. I knew how awesome of a program it was and I had to give back that knowledge that they gave me. The funny thing is that I notice that I'm still learning, it's different because I'm also learning from my students. That's why I say that I absolutely love Friends with a Better Plan!! I suggest any and everyone to consider volunteering with us especially if you love teenagers :)
