A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.
- Oprah Winfrey
We are a group of Reading residents participating in a mentorship program to better ourselves and our community. Originally, we started this to provide a way to ease the pain of social isolation created by quarantining during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic but we are adapting and changing to ensure that this mentorship program is available to all those who need and want it.
- Build strong and positive connections between older students and younger students.
- Give young adults a way to take on additional responsibilities while bettering their community.
- Create a safe place for learning, whether it's academic learning or emotional and mental growth.
