It is a blessing to work with my two students. The relationships that we are forming bring me such joy. My times with them are bright spots in my week. Thank you for continuing this program. I know that it benefits our mentees as well as our mentors.

I enjoy when my mentor comes to see me–she makes me feel happy. We practice math facts and she helps me study. I’m pretty sure she helped me get a “3” on my oceanography test.

Dylan, Clark Elementary

It’s such a joy to see the light in a student’s eyes when a concept clicks–and what a privilege to be part of that process!

Amy Howard, Issaquah High School

This program gives as much back to me as I give to the boys that I mentor. Sometimes, the most important part is not helping them with their school work, but it is being an adult presence in their life who is supportive, and who will listen and often just answer questions.
