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

Rating: 5 stars  

Youth Mentoring Connection provides us the opportunity to connect with underserved youth from local Los Angeles neighborhoods.

For us, the adults, YMC provide the support that allows these mentoring relationships to grow. It is especially rewarding that mentor and mentee couples can continue to build on their relationship from year to year and the adults can follow through and support their mentee as they tackle the challenges of college and beyond.

Youth Mentoring Connection makes it all happen, providing a consistent support structure that many of these kids have not experienced before.

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

We are challenged to open up and share in the same way that the kids are, and I have personally learned at least as much as the "mentees" from our group and one-on-one sessions.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make "Urban Oasis" happen for the kids.

Role:  Volunteer & Attend YMC sessions every other week as well as personal-time meetings with my mentee.
