"Mentoring means being there for support, encouragement and some days just to listen." - Patty Stemple
self-All of our mentors makes a world of difference in the lives of their mentees every single day. This month, we celebrate the compassion and true dedication to youth mentoring of Patty Stemple- a Lunch Buddy volunteer at St. Andrew’s School of Math and Science.
Patty and her mentee have been matched for going on three years. Over their time together her mentee has come out of her shell, gaining confidence in her social and academic skills.
“I enjoy seeing her master new skills. We have been working on her
multiplication tables using flash cards. She requests to do them every
week, and is now ready to move on to mastering division.” – Patty
Patty hopes her mentee continues to gain confidence that she can do anything she puts her mind to. We are so grateful for all our mentors, like Patty, who instill this self-assurance in their mentee each week.
