"BranchOut! mentors were a great support to Willston Community Center and have allowed us to serve more children within the community... From making slime to coding on code.org, and playing golf on the soccer field, BranchOut! mentors have worked with 60 participants daily and have brought innovating projects to Willston Community Center."
- Mary Hamilton, Community Coordinator at Patrick Henry Family Shelter
“We were able to learn everything in the curriculum because we were not slowing down; BranchOut! mentors reached out to every student. The retaking and one-on-one reteaching led students to achieve the grade they wanted.”
-Lourdes Ferrer, Algebra II Teacher at Gaithersburg High School
“I’ve been with BranchOut! for three summers now, and I’m happy to say that every year has been more rewarding than the last. This past summer, I was able to improve not only as a tutor and a mentor, but also as a leader. I developed stronger personal skills that allowed me to learn how to lead. And while I had my fair share of missteps, BranchOut!’s supportive, self-improvement oriented nature allowed me to grow from each experience.”
-Lawrence Zhu, Co-President and Mentor at James Lee Community Center and Willston Multicultural Center
