“Had it not been this after school program I would not have achieved what I achieved now. I have attended this after school program for my last two years of high school. This is reason why I am now back to help out the homework club” (Canadian Somali community volunteer, 20 years old 3rd year Science student: University of Alberta).
This program has significantly helped my kids. The program had number of quality activities that filled the time of my kids. Because of this program I now have three of my kids attending University of Alberta and one is in apprenticeship program where is now studying Power Engineering program at NAIT: Somali Canadian Father!
The after school program has helped my kids with their homework. I am single mother who cannot afford hiring tutor. I was fortunate enough to have this program. I was new into the country and did not have communication skills and the education needed to help my kids. This was wonder program. I will never forget it” .
“I feel coming here makes me a better person, nicer person. Coming here motivates me to do my homework, receive mentoring and interact with group students who are my age. It is fun to be here. – I feel a sense of responsibility – gone the days of hanging out with bad friends and neglecting my homework” .
