Giving Back In So Many Ways

30 Dec 2014

3 Several Sheboygan County students of Horizons4Girls spent the morning making sock puppets, doing crafts, playing games, and reading with the children at Salvation Army Day Care Center.

Some were able to renew their friendship with 2014 program graduate, while others met for the first time Guadalupe Martinez who is an AmeriCorp worker on the West Coast as she visited during the holidays.

The students were able to ask Guadalupe questions about ‘life after high school graduation’ and what her plans are. She shared thoughts that included the ‘drama of school and classmates’ becoming a faint memory.

She now has plans that include college, starting her own publishing company for new authors, and even returning to become a peer to peer mentor of middle and high school students and eventually becoming a certified mentor with Horizons4Girls.

Horizons4Girls will be hosting Dr. Debbie Lassiter at an informational presentation on January 15th. For more information about Horizons4Girls call them at 920-254-1584 or visit our web site at www.horizons4girls.com.
