   I’ve been working in the Mentoring Field for 3 + years.  I previously worked as a Mentoring Coordinator for Friends Outside in their Reentry Program.  I started working for Building Futures Academy and  YouthBuild/Americorps as a Mentoring Specialist since Feb 2015.

   During these times we live in I find that there is a great need for a Mentor in a young person’s life.  It is important that a student receives education, job skills, personal development, leadership skills and a chance to get their lives headed in a positive direction.  Mentors are a key part of the YouthBuild Vision in supporting the students learning, development, and achieving their goals.  It’s such a blessing knowing that I have the opportunity to make a positive impact on a young person’s life as they go through the YouthBuild experience and to ensure their continued educational, personal, and professional success.
