Review for Youth Mentoring Connection, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered as a mentor with Youth Mentoring Connection for the past 8 years, working directly with 5 youth mentees during that time. I witnessed a young man become the first person in his family to ever graduate from high school, a young woman try to come to terms with an incarcerated father, two mentees dealing with the death of a parent and a teenager learning how to be a mother to her own child. The support each of these young people felt just being a part of the YMC community was paramount to their personal growth.

The impact Youth Mentoring Connection has on the youth as well as the adult mentors is immeasurable. YMC is a true blessing to society and I cannot imagine my life apart from them.
