Your donation is an investment in young people’s success!
Kids need positive adults present in their lives. We as adults understand that – but so do young people. Though we do not hear and see that often, kids will admit that they appreciate and respect when adults even take the time to say “hi” and listen for a response, or even more, get to know them and offer encouragement.
Help us provide this much needed connection for hundreds of other kids in need of a supportive and inspiring adult mentor. Donate today!
