As the school closes out and the doors of the Paradise Reading Center close until the next school year, I wanted to write this BB to shed some light on all that F3 and PRC have been through.
We embarked on the opportunity to engage with the youth the second half of the school year at the Paradise Reading Center and what a pleasure its been ever since! We have been able to read with kids of all different reading levels and see them excel and grow. We also have been able to make the PRC more than a Reading Center. We have had the opportunity to mentor and discuss topics of financing, higher education, careers, etc. With the awesome donation of 5 Apple Mac computers from Forest Hill Church Fort Mill , the Center was able to expand their computer lab providing access and resources to more students. We also established the”See it, Be it” campaign given the youth an opportunity to hear from various professionals with many coming from neighborhoods similar to their own. The youth were encouraged by various professionals that they too could do the same thing if they aspire to. It has been a honor to be a part of the team along with other voluteers to see the development of some great young minds at the Center who have been nothing more than accepting of F3 from day one!
Cant begin to thank all the PAX and the 2.0’s that came through week in and week out to provide that impact as well! Whether it was once or several times it was much appreciated and the youth are better because of the PAX and 2.0’s consistent presence. Also want to thank those PAX that donated books, supplies, etc. As the title states this is is only the end of the beginning! We have just scratch the surface of what we can do through this Center so very excited about the future! We have a updated schedule for the upcoming school year for use the link below to sign up because its never too early for an HC! If you did not have a chance this school year, I encourage you to take the tie to come through and #serve.
