“I was incredibly impressed with Mr. Walls when he described his leadership program to me. First, I was looking for an outlet for my older students to learn some leadership skills, learn about themselves, be exposed to different colleges and professions. I've seen an increased responsibility that many of my students have. Secondly, they've matured a great deal over our meetings (9 month program) and they're looking at their future as a brighter and more positive place to be. Students were chosen strategically, because they were high performing, and others that would benefit and I've seen great turnaround in all of them; grades and behavior improved and they viewed it (Access2Success Educational Leadership Program) as a great opportunity. Lastly, I wanted them taken out of their neighborhood and expose them to different surroundings and MINDS provided that for us. MINDS incorporated sports, hip-hop, school, poetry, and real-life situations in delivering the MINDS philosophy and I am really invested in this program in the future.”
