School co leader Laurel Kosa saw the Bradford program in action several years ago, and since then has worked toward giving families in Galeton the opportunity to be a part of PROSPER. Thanks to funding provided by Potter County Human Services, and the combined efforts of the Potter County PROSPER Team, 10 families graduated from SFP 10-14 this past November.
The families enjoyed themselves so much they requested Booster sessions for the spring. Seven families returned for the Booster sessions. When asked to give a quote to encourage others to take the program, one of the youth summed it up well - "Hi - this is the best - you get free food, you get to hang out with friends and they are nice plus no homework." One of the parents made a good observation – “Like everything - the more you participate the more you get out. Sure beats sitting home watching TV.
Even the most seasoned parent can benefit from a fresh perspective and take something helpful away from the various sessions.” It is indeed exciting to welcome the Galeton community to PROSPER!
