Celebrating the Difference a Mentor can Make
Have you ever been a mentor? Ever wondered about the difference you could make? Read below about how mentoring relationships have impacted the students in our program.
ONE HOUR. ONCE A WEEK. ONE YEAR. TWO CHANGED LIVES.
Dear Jacquie, “Thank you, Mrs. Jacquie, for always being there for me and always giving me good advice. I really do appreciate our talks. I always look forward to our meetings.”— Nichole
Dear Mike, “Thank you for becoming my mentor this year. Also thank you for going out of your way to come see me every Tuesday. I hope we can finish the year great!”— Ramon
Dear Ellen, “Words cannot express all that you have done for me. With everything that has happened to me this year, I’ve really started to think of you as family. You’ve always made sure that I’m doing what I’m supposed to, and accomplish everything that I deserve. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”— Jennifer
Dear Monica, “Thank you for all that you do. You go beyond the call, so words can’t express how thankful I am. My life has changed because someone like you decided to care and love me. You are the best.” —Chasity
Dear Don, “I want to thank you for taking time to meet with me about getting free college. Before this whole Project Leadership came into play, I had no intention of going to college. I already knew I wasn’t going. But now that you’re here helping me and getting everything set up, I know now that I’m going. I know that my future holds more now. Because of you, I’m doing way better in school than I would’ve because I know I have to keep my grades up for college and for a better future. I also want to thank you for taking me to all the games and camps that you’ve taken me to. It was awesome. I don’t get to do that stuff a lot, so thanks. Thank you so much for actually caring and putting in effort. It means a lot.” — Wyatt
Dear Dick, “As I write this, I think about how great my future can and will be. At the beginning, I didn’t think I would change. I also didn’t think I would be able to continue my job as a student. The past couple of years have changed all that, and there are so many things that I want to go to college for. With your help, I can become something I never thought I could. I just want to thank you for that. Thank you.”— Austin
