The Giving Back Mentoring programs are for the mentors just as much as the children and elders. In my vision of this organization, the mentors as volunteers “giving back” to the community are the most important element. I care so much about the mentors. They have become my friends, the glue that holds the program together. They are the love. The mentors are the creators of community by generously “giving back” their time and gifts to us.
