"Being a Mentor" by Susan of Federal Way
Two years ago a friend told me about Communities In Schools and how she became a mentor. She made the experience sound so wonderful that I signed up to be a mentor the following year. Nothing could have prepared me for this experience – it is life-changing. My mentee is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. She is determined, hopeful and unstoppable. For one hour a week, we meet and talk, do activities and inspire each other. I am so proud of her, and what she has and will accomplish. I highly recommend becoming a mentor, make a difference in a child’s life and have a child make an impact in your life – you won’t regret it.
