Mentoring had long been in my heart and mind.
Thinking about the positive impact I could make on a young person’s life, being a positive consistent support person in their life. I started mentoring at the beginning of the year, I was pleasantly surprised at how open and excited my mentee was and how many different things we were able to do prior to COVID-19. We learned card games from each other, ate some good food, did some glass art, and stared a sewing project! Now with social distancing in place, we plan to explore the outdoors and get some much needed fresh air and exercise on our weekly visits! I feel blessed to be able to be an extra source of support to our youth!
