I just want to tell you how much my son, Anthony, enjoyed the FACE program. The first class he attended, he was extremely embarrassed and lacked self-confidence to do the activities with the group. He did not want to go back. After much discussion, we were able to guide him into “giving the class another try”. He embraced it and really thrived throughout the remainder of the program. He was eager to go each week and come home to discuss and show us what he had learned. I think his biggest accomplishment was that he got up in front of the entire 4th grade and demonstrated what he had learned!! He displayed self-confidence that I rarely see and I was so proud of him!! I know this program has really made a difference for him. A huge thank you to Kirk for inspiring these students and giving them self-confidence to be a leader!
