My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Youth Mentoring Connection, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I joined the program as a mentor from 2010-2011. I recently had to stop mentoring because my schedule changed. As I get to look back...I noticed that not only my mentee(a 12 year old teenager matched with me) has changed throughout the program but also myself. Thanks to the group and one-on-one meetings I have noticed the importance of being present, of showing up for what really matters, of enjoying the simplest things in life such as nature and the sun. I have gained motivation for my own life by showing ongoing support for my mentee. The match was also great, I was able to see the problems that my mentee had in my own childhood/adolescent period. I thank Youth Mentoring Connection for keeping up with the amazing work that they do and I invite you to join as a mentor, you won't regret it :)
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I got motivated to take risks in my life, I applied to grad school, got accepted and I am currently in the middle of my program
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand the organization to the San fernando valley, Ventura county and more
