What is your favorite thing about College Mentors for Kids? I loved that it was a break from my every day school routine and that every week, I felt like I was making a true difference in the lives of these kids. I looked forward to seeing my little buddy every week.
Why do you continue to support College Mentors for Kids? I was so moved by the enormous impact that I could see we were having on these children as well as their mentors. I believe the power of having a mentor is beyond measure, and I can’t even imagine how much more successful both the buddies and the mentors will be for having been a part of this program.
What else would you like us to know about your College Mentors experience? The opportunity to serve as a leader in this organization was an experience I didn’t even know I needed for my own personal and professional development. I am extremely grateful for all that I learned in this position and for the people who believed in my abilities to do the job!
