FOUNDATION FOR SECOND CHANCES
April 19, 2011

Growing up in a single-parent household, I always longed for a male figure in my life. Serving as a mentor through Foundation for Second Chances has allowed me to take on this role in the life of a young man. This experience has been extremely rewarding, on numerous levels. Not only have I developed a great relationship with my mentee, I have also learned a lot about myself.

The program is designed in such a way that mentors do not feel lost or overwhelmed when establishing and developing a relationship with their mentees. The trainings, support sessions, and manuals available made me feel competent in becoming a mentor.

The monthly group outings the staff coordinates are an excellent opportunity for both my mentee and I to meet and interact with numerous mentor matches. The outings vary from recreational to educational, and everything in between. On other occasions, my mentee and I hang out, grab a bite to eat, visit cool places, and talk about whatever is on our minds. Regardless of the type of activity, we always have a great time.

Staff at Foundation for Second Chances is extremely inviting and dedicated to making the mentoring experience enjoyable and memorable.
