Women of Tomorrow Mentor & Scholarship Program
October 1, 2012

I have been a Mentor for young some since i began teaching High School over 40 years ago. Today i am beginning my 7th Year as a Women of Tomorrow Mentor. Every year our young women tell us that involvement in our program is changing their lives. We believe that it does indeed open doors and opportunities for the rest of their lives. Many of these women are from homes where they would never have an option for a college experience or learn about professions or interests that they may choose to pursue. Thank you women of Tomorrow for giving me an area to change lives.

The Great!

Our youth stay in school, delay parenting longer, remain focused on career paths and generally become more financially independent earlier than the majority of Foster Care youth who do not have an experience like Casa Valentina.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Grow it faster by helping to raise more funds to help more young people.
