“It is said that when one person mentors, two lives are changed. Mentoring has introduced both of us to new situations, new places, new activities and new people.  Our worlds have grown and our hearts have expanded.  Each week, I learn new things from her and she learns new things from me. We laugh a lot, but we have serious talks too. We have become part of each other’s lives.  I am someone else she can count on.”

“The afterschool homework help, tutors, and mentors have made all the difference in the world to my children’s education.  I believe a program like this provides hope and inspiration to the community and to the children who are lucky enough to receive this assistance.”
