One student shared his frustration with managing stress, bullying and the demands of balancing high school and helping his mother care for 13 siblings. He is an artist and a bookworm – though not your stereotypical one. While mentees typically get the opportunity to choose from the prize box, sometimes items choose them. It was no surprise when he picked out The Little Book of Mindfulness: Focus, Slow Down, Destress .

Our prize box used to be filled with gift cards, but our students really like receiving “gifts.” We now offer various fun and encouraging items. Some items have been donated from special people like Lisa Patterson who owns a home-based jewelry business.

Thinking about donating items? We’d love to highlight you in our next newsletter. Contact Us
