I became aware of FIT Community Service because my sons teacher referred me to their after school program. We were living in the area for over a year, but I didn’t know of any programs or activities for him. He was very quiet and would not talk in class. The teacher was worried about him not playing with other kids and being bullied. It was so much stress for me. I registered him for the A.S.E (After School Essentials) program and within a few weeks I saw my son making new friends, they did a series on Bully Prevention, and even did a whole bunch of activities around how to be a good friend. His teacher said he was answering questions in class now, and at recess he now had two friends to play with. It made such a difference for him. I was so happy, I started to volunteer in the Afterschool program, I learned so much about how to help with homework, even how to play again! I was so proud when he received the school’s Future ACE Award. I know that the staff at FIT really made a difference for my son and it changed how he felt about school.
