Think back on your life. Was there ever at time when you had the help, advice, or caring ear from an older adult to provide perspective and support during a tough situation? And how much did it help to know that someone else understood or maybe even just HEARD you?
Well, some students in our community don’t have that and YMI is passionate about providing that to our youth. If you agree with and value the benefits a mentor can have in the life of a youth, please consider becoming a mentor.
10 reasons why you should consider becoming a mentor:
#10 Because you have been thinking about it for a long time and now it is time to put your thoughts into action.
#9 Because it brings out the kid in you.
#8 Because there is more to life than exercising.
#7 Because you wouldn’t be where you are today it if wasn’t for mentors in your own life.
#6 Because every kid deserves a chance.
#5 Because it is a great way to meet new people while doing something that matters.
#4 Because it has a huge ripple effect.
#3 Because investing in our youth is an investment in the future of our community.
#2 Because it is priceless to know you have made a difference in the life of a child.
#1 Because there are over 600 students in the Hamilton Southeastern School System who could use a Mentor!
