Save a Life, Become a Mentor
Constantly we have watched our family members, friends, and colleagues endure the turmoil of losing a young one due to violence. Something that was once considered a rare tragedy has now become a common epidemic that has taken over our communities like stage-four cancer. To acknowledge the problem, we must take the responsibility to come up with a solution to end the cycle.
Across the United States, an extensive amount of programs is available that can assist our youth for a better future as well as stray them away from the violence. This is the perfect time to mentor our youth and showed them the endless possibilities of the world. If you are looking for a way to save our youth, become a mentor, make the change and show them limitless opportunities.
