Give Back to Your Community in 2014!
Another year has begun and is filled with the hope for a bright year of health and happiness. It is very common that at the beginning of a new year we all begin to think about resolutions: things that we want to change or improve in our lives, new goals and purposes.
If you are still trying to figure out what new goal you want to accomplish in the New Year, I have a wonderful suggestion for you: Become a Mentor for a child in your community.
Why a mentor? Because this way you will be contributing to your community, you will be helping those who one day will be the future: our kids.
What is being a mentor? A friend and a positive role model.
What would we do? Have Fun!! This valley is full of possibilities and fun things to do. The Buddy Program also offers free activities for you and your Little Buddy to enjoy together. Some of these activities coming this winter are Bowling, Ski Day and a Salsa party!
How do I do this? Call the Buddy Program: the Director of Recruitment or one of our Case Managers can give you the information you need to get started.
Get ready to play, dance and laugh like a kid again and at the same time see your little buddy grow, flourish and become a positive member of our community. This is the pleasure of giving back and being a mentor. There are many children and youth waiting to have a mentor like you. Don’t let another year pass you by without giving mentoring a try. You and your little buddy will have a great life experience together!
National Mentoring Month was this past month of January and I would like to thank all mentors in our community, for your consistency, time, love and dedication to all the Little Buddies along the Roaring Fork Valley. Thank you!
