February: Love is in the Air with Mentorship!
Mentorship is the fuel that drives our LADYS Program. What better way to celebrate mentorship

“These past couple of months have taught me a lot about what it means to be a mentor and what it
is like to be part of a young girl's life. As an only child, I never knew what it was like to have a little

because it has taught me to be aware of my words and actions and the effect it has on my
relationship with my mentee, Paola. I have learned to be a better listener by using active listening

Her two little brothers get excited when they see me and her parents are very attentive and
