I am passionate about the mission of ASAP as a safe, engaging space for middle school students to work, eat and play together with friends and caring adults.

Having been with ASAP from the very 1st day I have seen the value this program has had for so many of our middle schoolers. I’m looking forward to working with a very dedicated group of people on the board.

Donna Eberle,
Board Secretary

After retiring from the Silver Falls School District I had the time for volunteering.  I started out on a cooking team which I am still a part of. When I was asked to join the ASAP Board it was easy to say yes.  I believe in this program and want to help it continue to be a positive support for middle school students.

It is critical that all kids, especially those going through their middle school years, have a positive connection with peers and adults.  It is not uncommon for students to struggle both socially and academically without it.  ASAP has provided this positive connection for Silverton Middle School kids for years.  With a great staff of influential adults, combined with food, fun, and academic help, ASAP fills a much needed void.  As the program expands, so will the meaningful impact it has on our community.

Retired from teaching, I have volunteered as a cook for ASAP for the last 8 years.  It has been wonderful to see students mature during each year, and gain confidence.  Such a terrific program!

ASAP is so important to our community in Silverton because it has created an intercultural, safe space where youth and volunteers can feel welcome, valued and invited into mentorship and mutual accompaniment. 


Karin Petit,
Meal Coordinator

ASAP is such an important organization in Silverton.   For middle school aged students, it is a time of transition and decisions made now, greatly affect their adult life.  That is why ASAP is so important.  Helping students with their schoolwork, giving them a healthy meal, and time for a fun activity are steps for each to do well in school and adulthood.

I have been a special education teacher for the past 35 years, 15 of those years in the Silver Falls School District.  I have known many students who have benefited from this program over the years and I have great admiration for the program and the staff.  ASAP is a huge benefit for our community and I am thrilled to be a part of it!
