As a juvenile court judge I see many teens that come to our court lacking positive focus. I am grateful for the efforts of The First Place Association and their positive message program. I applaud the goal setting values offered by the Zoom Language Program and the efforts to provide teens with "Award Winning" focus.

As a worker in the child welfare system, I have worked with youth who have limited resources, due to poor communication skills, poor social skills and low frustration tolerance. Our agency   has utilized the POSITIVE SIGNAGE PROGRAM and the  ZOOM LANGUAGE PROGRAM  in order to assist our girls at improving their skills that are necessary to become positive members of society. We appreciate the time and energy you have taken working with our agency and graciously giving us these materials to help us work with our youth.

As a parent and author I know the value of promoting positives to our teenage population. I work with teens and offer presentations on Life Skills. Your program Zoom Language gives teens a very easy and fun way to set goals. Thanks again for developing the App…

Your programs are long overdue. As a parent of  2 teens, I like other mothers see and hear the daily challenges teens are fronted with. The zoom Language Program seems to offer the Skill Set of focus and planning. I wish I had your Flash Card Program when I was growing up. Thanks for your dedication to our Teenage population.

WHAT OUR TEENS ARE SAYING

I am using your Positive Signage Program at home. I seem to be more organized, like getting started before I leave for school. I’m glad I had a chance to attend your presentation. The Four T's have changed my view about success. I can do this.

Now I can go to trade school. The information I got at your Life Direction Program got me thinking more on the plus side. Thanks for the great ideas especially the meaning of the Core Values. The [Positive Signage Program's] magnets are on the fridge and offer me positive input everyday!
