My experience with CfY has opened my eyes to how many people, especially young people, want to get involved and help others as mentors. I also realized how many incredible young students that have so much to offer are looking for (and needing) the support and friendship of others. The combination of incredible people wanting to help and incredible people looking for and needing help works.” Roger has shared.
