"I volunteer at CCFA because I would like to have a career that helps young children and this is giving me the experience. This experience helps me because I enjoy working with the children and building a bond with them. Also, I like witnessing their development with one on one instruction. CCFA is unique because we work with the siblings and parents. CCFA is one big happy family!"

Dishea McBride, Tutor, Homework Clinic, Teacher, Trenton Board of Education

"When I first heard about CCFA it was from a colleague, she told me about a program that was dedicated to giving back to the children in the community. I did not hesitate to get involved. CCFA not only provides homework help to struggling students, they offer parents an opportunity to better themselves as well. CCFA proves that it does take a community to educate our children by showing the parents the difference they make when being involved. I am forever grateful to CCFA for allowing me to be a part of their journey."

Instead of talking, I let my actions speak for me!"
