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

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a mentor at Youth Mentoring Connection. I volunteer my time with kids "at risk". I have a twice a month obligation with the group mentoring and one-on-one but I usually see my mentee on a weekly basis. His name is Alex and he is 15 years-old. I encourage him to follow his dreams and goals, do better in school and I also guide him in his personal life. I learn a lot from him, and I found that we have a lot in common. :) I want to see Alex, as well as other mentees at Youth Mentoring Connection receiving mentoring and having an opportunity to further advance themselves to the best of their potentials. Great program!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Alex demeanor with other people, self confidence and having goals in life.
