ORANGE COUNTY YOUTH MOTIVATION TASK FORCE INC
August 23, 2012

One of my colleagues introduced me to this incredible organization a couple of years ago. Because I have always enjoyed high school/ youth students, I was eager to volunteer if I could fit it into my work schedule. The first time, I went, I was paired up with an experienced volunteer, and we stepped into a classroom to tell our story, how we got to where we are, and encouraged the kids to finish high school, and set their goals high, dream big, and know that it's okay if they change their minds along the way. Even though I couldn't relate to their background, because many of the students are living in socio-economically challenged areas, they still connected to my story of failing and making mistakes along the way, but ultimately being able to arrive in a career field where I am happy and fulfilled. I strongly encourage anyone in any field to come back and serve their community in this rewarding way.
