For the first time, Community for Youth is keeping a list of students waiting to be matched with a mentor. That means we need more mentors!
Each of our fantastic mentors got involved in Community for Youth to make a difference in a deserving students life. However, by the end of the school year, our mentors realize that not only have they made a difference in their students life, but CfY has had a fundamental impact on who they are.
So what does it take to be a Community for Youth mentor? Dependability, patience, flexibility and most of all, a relentless commitment to influencing and guiding a young persons success. CfY mentors come from all walks of life single, married, early in their careers, retired, representative of all ethnic groups, beliefs and lifestyles. In short, they are like our students diverse, inquisitive, open to new experiences, and willing to grow and change.
Ready to volunteer or know of anyone that would make a great mentor? Please contact Mark Takehara at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
