Mentor-2“My daughter will be the first in our family to go to college. Without the help of this program my daughter wouldn’t have these wonderful mentors who are helping her maneuver the college process. As a single mother I worried about providing for my children. With this program I can see that my daughter is in great hands and we have so much hope for her future as a college student.” – Rosio P.
