“As a parent it is almost overwhelming to see the positive impact that the GSPA program this summer had on our son. He’s making smarter choices with his time, and is looking for more opportunities to excel and contribute. In speaking with him one of the reasons for this renewed outlook is the quality of the other students that were on the trip. He speaks fondly of many of them. He found them to be intelligent, caring and engaging. He valued their company and found them to be peers that he could relate to. It is clear the benefits to our son were immense and life changing. For that we are extremely grateful to you and your staff as it is obvious that your program changes lives on both sides of the equation.”
