Please be inspired by Richard Miles’ story of service. I first came across HorsePower at my college in New Hampshire. Once I got started in the program I found that I liked volunteering my services for this program.

Florence G. Phillips, a former Peace Corps and VISTA volunteer, is the founder/director of the ESL (English as a Second Language) In-Home Program of Northern Nevada. Her innovated efforts in education over the last five years have positively impacted a great number of people living in five Northwest Nevada counties. Florence saw the problem facing many immigrants --- they cannot speak English and desperately want to learn, but for a variety of reasons are unable to attend formal classes.
