Connecting Futures/ Kings Daughters
Mentoring programs are a must for the youth in our area and world wide. The growth of each youth in the program has exploded. Each year more and more visions, progress and charater has pushed its way forward in our youth because of Sharon Allen's dream becomming a reality. The youth have a future to look forward to. At the end of the day one person has touched someone who will touch someone else who in return will touch someone else. That is worth a pot of gold....
Sharon Allen is a phenomenon woman and trailblazer of Union County. Sharon took a stand to make a difference in our community. Instead of just talking about what needed to be done to address the disparities within our communities and schools that service our underprivileged youth, she took a step and established a wonderful organization” Connecting Futures” to address the issues. I commend her for her courage, perseverance and commitment in spite of obstacles that she may face.
As for the program itself, it is one that children are so excited & proud to be a part of because they receive attention and exposure to things that in their normal life, they wouldn’t have the opportunity to. Which is why I am so committed to the organization because I see the potential that it has, I see the need in the community for it and with the right support and funding; it could be a great success in making a difference in the futures of our children.
