For over 70% of the families we work with, English is a second language, and communication must be done through an interpreter. But still, H4G develops meaningful relationships.
One such story: Sexual abuse by a family member. Attempted suicide. Poor school attendance. Dysfunctional family life. But a relationship was built, a passion was followed, high school graduation realized, a summer of service work in AmeriCorp completed. College. Marriage. Family. That relationship, started years ago in high school, comes full circle as that student returns to share her insights as she now builds relationships with current students.
A $120 donation will make training resources available for a mentor for that critical 1st year as they start on this new venture. Or, why not make that New Year's resolution and join those volunteers learning to develop meaningful relationships with students at Horizons4Girls.
Entering their 10th year, H4G volunteers are trained to become certified mentors. Certified mentors develop long-term developmental relationships with their students, thus contributing to their success.
Search Institute research states, "We’ve known for decades that high-quality relationships are essential to young people’s growing, learning, and thriving—including for those young people who face serious stresses in their lives and in the world around them."
Give that special inspiration in 2021!
