Think back to when you were young. Would you be where you are today without the support of a mentor or role model? As a mentor, you have the ability to inspire a young person, show them that someone cares about them, and advise them through life’s challenges. It’s an opportunity to leave a lifelong impact on youth in need. Supportive, stable, and consistent relationships are critical in order for all young people to thrive. With your guidance, your mentee will experience a world that is bigger than what they know.
There’s an intrinsic desire in all of us to be part of something bigger than ourselves. One of the best ways to do that is to be a volunteer. Growing up, service was seamlessly integrated into my life by my parents. Being of service to others and involved in my community, are core values that I’m lucky were passed down on both sides of my family.
