2019 02 11 We Celebrate MEntors Kevin Jephthe

We Celebrate Mentors: Featuring Kevin Flanagan

The Friends Youth Mentoring Program is proud to welcome Kevin Flanagan to our stellar team of mentors. Kevin and his wife have enjoyed living in the Capital Region for nearly two decades.

Kevin previously worked with a local benefit plan provider, conducting seminars and safety classes on a broad variety of subjects. His colleagues say he has been mentoring for most of his adult life and has now decided to make his mentoring official, lending strength and support to his mentee Jephthe’s life.

When Kevin learned that Jepthe’s native language is Swahili, he learned to speak words of greeting to Jepthe’s family. He has approached their time together with energy and enthusiasm.

Kevin stepped up to improve the life of a local young person and you can too by calling one of our coordinators to register for an orientation, the first step toward mentoring a child! (603) 228-0108

2019 03 08 We Celebrate Mentors

We Celebrate Mentors: Featuring Deb Kolling

The changes a young person experiences from the 5th grade to high school are immeasurable. Mentor Deb Kolling has been there for her mentee Amber to help her navigate that journey since 2015. During that time Deb has served as a reliable and trusted adult in Amber’s life during a pivotal developmental stage of growth.

Deb’s personal journey brought her and her husband to New Hampshire after a 33-year career as a school teacher. Deb has accumulated a lot of wisdom gleaned from her classroom experience, as well as from being the proud parent of two children, and as a grandmother. Deb combines her wisdom with an abundance of positivity to be a guiding light for Amber.

The Friends Youth Mentoring Program is looking for people who can provide that important guiding light to the deserving children in our community. Are you interested in taking that journey? Please call us at (603) 228-0108.

2019 01 31 2015 RSVP Caren Bonisteel

 Some stories are just so good that they bear repeating! With the New England Patriots celebrating another AFC Championship and Super Bowl appearance, it’s worth mentioning and cheering that they also celebrate volunteerism.

Did you know that Friends RSVP Program volunteer, Caren Bonisteel, is a “Patriots Difference Maker” recipient and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation are supporters of the Friends Program? Team members honored Caren with a visit to Concord, where they spent time with local children and Friends Program volunteers.
