Jack and his mentee have shared many experiences together over the past 2 1/2 years. One of their favorite activities is fishing, which provides a chance for Jack to have good conversation with his mentee. They also go on bike rides, to car shows, and numerous Mentor program activities. Jack is always looking out for his mentee's best interest, encouraging him to do well in school and explore career options. He's taken him to his workplace and engaged him in learning new musical instruments.
Jack's mentee was unfocused, had low self-esteem, and was on the shy side when he was referred by his teacher. Now, he is well known at his school, has a desire to succeed, and has found confidence in his abilities. Jack has developed a friendship with his mentee's entire family and is always engaged in helping make sure his mentee continues in the right direction. Jack, thank you for always being by his side and supporting him every step of the way, even when times are rough and the future unsure. You are wonderful!!
