I have been involved with FFY for the past 10+ years as a supporter of their charitable events, Anniversary Dinner, Golf Tournament Fashion Show and as a personal donor. Mentoring is key to the success of us all and the stories of success that FFY has to tell are tremendously rewarding. It is a pleasure as a current Board Member and past President, to asscociate and make a commitment to the organization and staff.

No one would argue that having people around who believe in you, who are there for you in good and bad times, who inspire you to aim higher and achieve is critical for your success. What if you are a child and there is no one around you who could fulfill that role? Friends for Youth is an answer. They have proven that mentoring works, if it is done right. One child's dream can go from a desire to clean the planes in hopes of finding lost valuables, to owning a store in just a few months of mentoring by a person who was carefully selected. FFY's success rate is amazing because they put a lot of thought and energy into the process of selecting and training future mentors. Combining theory (mentoring institute) with practice helps FFY to be one of the best mentoring organizations. Their reputation is well deserved.
