I have been a Adult 2 Youth Mentor for the past 3 1/2 years. It has been an enlightening experience in that as I have "put myself out there for our teens" the return for me has been life changing. I became a Child Advocates volunteer due to my own personal experience as a mother with a former teen involved in the Juvenile Justice system. The opportunity to give back has been my pleasure. As I tell my "mentee" youth "I have buckled my seat belt and I am in this with you for the journey ahead." Kudos to the small army of wonderful staff at Child Advocates of Placer County for your dedication to the youth of Placer County. I heartfully bless this wonderful non-profit for the work that they do to enrich the lives of our foster youth, families in need, youth at risk, youth in probation, youth aging out of the foster care system, deserving children and youth up to age 22.
