LETTER: Y mentor program is effective, enjoyable

Posted

I am a mentor in the YMCA's Building Futures Program. This is my first year participating.

I became involved because I wanted to contribute to the good of this community, and providing any kind of positive support for children seemed an effective way to do that.

Devoting only one hour a week is very little time and effort for the large return. A pamphlet from the Y explained the program's outstanding success.

I doubted my ability to add anything truly significant to this endeavor, but with the encouragement from the program’s enthusiastic coordinator, Dana Nixon, I decided to join.

So far, I have enjoyed being a mentor and feel happy to be apart of Building Futures.

Special thanks to Dana Nixon for her optimism, compassion and patience.
