Those of you who know our incredible team of staff, board members, and volunteers, know how committed we are to our mission - providing mentoring and educational programs for low income, immigrant youth. We provide holistic programming, focusing on 3 "C" goals: Confidence, College prep, Community activism.
In recent months:
- Confidence - We helped a mentee to develop his public speaking skills through several scholarship interview rounds; he was awarded a full-tuition scholarship to college.
- College prep - We provided workshops and one-on-one sessions to mentees and parents on strategies to navigate the high school and college application process.
- Community activism - We organized Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday volunteering events for mentees and mentors, serving hospitalized and homebound seniors.
We hope to expand our mentoring program to Brooklyn to help more immigrant youth. This holiday season, please help us reach our $25,000 goal by donating $25 or creating your own fundraisng page. Thanks for your support!
