Mentoring is a powerful thing. It’s fun, most anyone can be a mentor and it’s life-changing. By simply participating in fun activities together and forming a trusting bond with a child, it can potentially rewrite a child’s future, for the better. However, for as big of an impact that mentoring makes on a child, you’ll be amazed at what it will do for you, too.

All youth achieve their full potential.
