My daughter attend the STARS National Conference and it revolutionized her life. The speakers and workshops not only gave her mentor training, she gained confidence, leadership and life skills, peer support and acceptance. Because of her experiences with the Friends First STARS National Conference she is now pursuing employment working with inner city kids so that she can make a difference in someone else's life!
I have been involved with FRIENDS FIRST for over 15 years! In all of my experience as a volunteer, I have found that the mentoring programs are life-changing and impacting to youth, families, and communities on the whole. One of my favorite things about FRIENDS FIRST is the STARS National Conference, which has been reaching thousands of youth leaders nationally for going-on 17 years. As a participant, volunteer staff, and event coordinator, I have found this event to bring life, hope, and inspiration to all who experience it!
