I've been mentoring Felicity through Be A Mentor every Wednesday since August 2018. I've seen the benefits of mentoring firsthand by her growth in behavior and academics. I love meeting with her because I give her the space to talk about her everyday joys and struggles, and she gives me the opportunity to be reminded of my values and enact change in the community firsthand. Last school year, Be A Mentor served 250 students, #250Reasons to help BAM grow. Felicity is my reason why I think mentorship is important.
Be A Mentor works to enable youth to develop positive relationships with caring adults who empower them to reach their full potential through mentorship. I see value in the Be A Mentor program because there are so many youth in our community who need support, and it's up to us to believe them into being.
I had a great 2018-2019 school year with Be A Mentor, and am looking forward to next year! Help me help BAM raise the funds for another impactful school year in 2019-2020!
Whether it's $5 or $50, every donation helps more children like Felicity! Thank you for your support and for helping Be A Mentor make brighter futures across the Lowcountry!
