I strongly believe in and support mentor programs. Mentors serve as friends and role models for youth in the community. They can help guide and influence change in a young person’s life.

Adult Mentor programs are also wonderful and as important. Having a supportive person person in your life especially during difficult times can make a difference.

I have seen the differences that mentoring has made in many kids' lives. It only takes a small commitment to mentor teens but that amount of time can make a huge difference in the life of a child/teen.
