“I have known Dr. Robin Goins in a variety of capacities for over six years. I first met Dr. Goins when I was a City Councilman for the City of Riverside, CA and she had recently founded a new nonprofit focused on educating our at-risk populations in the city.  Since that time we have worked together on many projects, with our primary focus being to educate and improve the lives of those less fortunate in our community through education and mentorship.  I can honestly say that her passion and fortitude for the cause is unprecedented as I saw her grow her organization all the while completing a PhD and working full time as a college professor. During the time I have known Dr. Goins I have seen her grow her small organization serving a handful of at risk youth at our local continuation high school into a solid WASC accredited nonprofit postsecondary school that serves over 500 disadvantaged students per year across the Inland Empire, which spans 24,000 miles.” -

“The lessons learned in this class are applicable to grant writing and to life. If you are looking to improve your grant writing and yourself, Dr. Goins is a great teacher to have.  I signed up for this class based simply on her bio. Nothing else. In just a few weeks I found the authentic writer inside me and fell madly, deeply in love with her teaching style.  If you follow her lead you can and will do great things, but you must be willing to jump in head first and never look back. Thank you for a wonderful season of personal growth and significant development of my grant writing abilities.”
