I've been a Mentor with BRYC for 2 years now, and have had an amazing experience. As a former teacher, I felt like my efforts were spread thin among many students. I never felt as though I was able to take the high-touch approach that I wanted to with all of my students. Through BRYC, I got to get to know two amazing young ladies and future leaders. I also got to experience the sheer joy of college acceptance letters and new open doors all over again. This program is an absolute asset to the Baton Rouge community, and its model has the potential to serve communities across the nation.

The Baton Rouge Youth Coalition's mission is to ensure that hard-working teens have the resources they need to pursue their dreams. In a city that is rife with violence, poverty, and failing schools, top tier colleges and elite scholarship programs seem completely out of reach for even our brightest most successful students. What BRYC does is closes the gap between the talents and brilliance of our students and the opportunities and resources that are available to them. As a mentor, I had the privilege of guiding one young woman through the college process and watched her earn admission to Clark University in MA and earn over $35,000 in merit based scholarships, fundamentally altering her life path. I am inspired daily by the work BRYC does to level the playing field for Baton Rouge's students and by the students themselves as they accomplish remarkable things. Most importantly, BRYC brings a much needed hope to the city as Fellows grow empowered to create bold visions for the Baton Rouge they want to see and create the change to take us there.

BRYC is an incredible organization -- although I have not been involved for too long, BRYC has earned my deepest respect for its efforts changing the Baton Rouge community and serving its top students. BRYC is a community with contagious positivity and energy. BRYC inspires students and families to take action to better themselves and their communities. BRYC is exactly what Baton Rouge needs - it is a glimmer of hope in a failing school system. I urge every Baton Rouge high school student looking to invest in himself and his future to explore all that BRYC has to offer.
