We Celebrate Mentors!
Swimming, skating, tubing, volleyball, mini-golf, go-karts, and automatic car wash are all new experiences for Stuti, thanks to her mentor, Sandy Quint. When Sandy first expressed a desire to mentor she had some knowledge of what was involved. Her daughter Emma was a teen mentor with the Friends Program while a Concord High School student. Emma has now graduated from college, flown west as a successful broadcast journalist, and Sandy decided to join the ranks of Friends Program volunteer mentors who make a real and lasting difference in the lives of local youth.
With Sandy providing fundamental life experiences for her mentee, both lives are enriched. Stuti has shared her cultural foods with Sandy, who is impressed with the spices and flavors of Nepali cuisine. Sandy helps Stuti navigate issues both great and small, and encourages her love for artistic creativity—celebrating when Stuti received a Scholastic Art and Writing Award and her art work was on display.
The Friends Youth Mentoring Program is grateful to have volunteers, like Sandy, helping children develop characteristics and capabilities that lead to positive life choices and personal growth. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, the first step is attending an orientation. Call us at (603) 228-0108 to schedule yours today!
