“There are so many hurting kids in the world. I wanted to do a small part to help provide some support and stability in at least one life.”

“My heart has a heavy burden for boys who have no father figure or male role model. They need guidance and an example to follow.”

“I love having fun with kids and talking with them about real choices.”

“I couldn’t believe the look of awe on my mentee’s face when he walked into a library for the first time. He was proud of his new library card.”

“My mentee was so sad about his home life that said that he wanted to die. We went on a group fishing trip, caught a fish and won a trophy. The next week he was a different boy.”

One of our ladies went to her first meeting with her mentee. She got to the house before her mentee got home from school. When she finally got home and found her mentor waiting for her, she seemed shocked. “I didn’t expect you to come.” She did and they had a great time.
