Violet has lived with her 76 year old grandmother for 3 ½ years because her mother has unresolved mental health issues. Her GAL volunteer reached out to us because Violet is a straight A student and avid reader. She conducts experiments at home and calls her GAL to report the results to her. She is curious and energetic and the grandmother isn’t sure how she will keep up with her activity level this summer as she is aging. Thanks to our funders and the “Let Kids Be Kids” Program her volunteer GAL was able to enroll Violet in a CSI camp at the Pinellas Science Center. Violet is already planning for college (even though she is only in middle school J) and returned to the Science Center over winter break as a K-1 teacher helper.
