A sixth grader from the Crystal Lake Middle School center. The transformation he has experienced is the reason why Firewall exists today.
Our 350 students will give back to their community THIS SATURDAY at:
We are so excited that our students have an opportunity to experience serving others through Serve-A-Thon.
There is still an opportunity to help support these students as they grow in their attendance, behavior, and course performance through the Firewall mentoring program.
AT OUR SEVEN CENTERS, WE HAVE HAD VARIOUS COMMUNITY MEMBERS COME AND SPEAK WITH OUR STUDENTS INCLUDING JOSE FLORES, A BUSINESS OWNER THAT HAS LOST HIS ABILITY TO WALK OVER TIME.
“You’ll never get where you want to go if you don’t know where you want to go… you have to have a plan.”
After he spoke to the students about his life story and realizing that his life has worth, the students at Pompano Beach Middle asked him about issues they are struggling with, like being bullied, how to become motivated and stay disciplined.
Jose told the students, among other things, that they are “indispensable” and to have confidence in yourself because they have potential.
He also reminded the students how important events that help others, like Serve-A-Thon, are to the community.
“When you’re a leader, it’s important to give back.”
Thank you for supporting Firewall and it’s vision to change the lives of students.
