When Haylee joined Mentors Care, she was very broken. As a sophomore, her grades were the last item of focus on her agenda. But it really was clear she had such a gentle spirit. It had just been badly battered. When she joined the program and met her mentor, Ms. Jamie, the two instantly clicked and their bond was evident.
Our mentors and the North Texas community came together in January for our annual Mentor Community Connection, a free educational workshop meant to empower and further educate our mentors and other adults who work with at-risk teens. We partnered with Bright Pools and Keynote Speaker, Pastor, and Counselor Dr. Eric Cupp of Midlothian who brought the powerful message,“Overcoming Grief & Loss”. The timely theme was decided as our students continue to deal with the trauma and loss brought on by COVID-19.
