I am going to college
The story of Sasha and her mentor Leslie is truly inspirational. Being matched for 10 years, Leslie ended up with a prestigious award for volunteering, and the admiration of Sasha as a great role model, and Sasha ended up being accepted to her favorite college with a full 4 year scholarship.
I fell in love with the arts
Google research shows that the most successful workers are not those who excelled in STEM subjects, but those who are good in STEAM -- with the A standing for the Arts. Many of our youth have fallen in love with the Arts, and we believe it is a valuable part of their education. Stay tunes as we document the story of Al and Kegan, who fell in love with music and photography.
I changed my mentor's life
Of course, having a great mentor changes a youth's life for the better. What is maybe not quite so obvious is that most youth who are being mentored are also changing the lives of their mentors. We hear it almost every time. It rejuvenates the mentors, it makes them see things differently and it increases their self-esteem. Check the story of Rob & Colton.
I see my future as a tradesperson
Being successful in life does not require a college degree. In fact, many young people who get attracted to a trade go on to become very successful tradespeople. In fact, many of our youth are following that path and we are helping 10 of them setting up their business. Check out the story of Ryan and Tyler, and how Ryan interjected the education of trade values as part of a seemingly unrelated project.
