Prentice Zinn, Program Officer, A.C. Ratshesky Foundation:

“We support Project ALERTA because it takes a holistic approach to developing the talent potential of Latino and English Language Learner students. Beyond academic skills, they gain self-esteem, a love of learning, and the motivation to pursue higher education.”

Martin Weinkle, President, Buddenbrooks, Inc. and ALERTA donor:

"I originally supported Project ALERTA because of its work in increasing English-language literacy in young students. Now I see that ALERTA is a catalyst for inspiring a new generation to make education and learning a top priority and a bridge to a better future."
