So, when I talked with Kent & Kyrsten, parents to two college-age boys, about mentoring a middle school girl, there was no doubt that there was a certain degree of apprehension about all the ways it could be difficult. But what transpired instead is this funny, quirky, completely “them” match that will have you in stitches if ever you get the privilege of spending any time with them.

  • Mentoring means so much to me.  It has given me hope and laughter.  It drives me to be a positive role model.  I am able to provide experiences to my mentee that she may never have had and she shows so much appreciation.
