" I hope that one day he can look back and think I truly helped make a positive difference in his life"
As we gear up for Thanksgiving, Be A Mentor is particularly thankful for every mentor that helps make a world of difference in a child’s life! This month we are celebrating Shannon Ryan, a mentor with us at Carolina Youth and Development Center, as our November Mentor of the Month! As a police officer, she has always loved working with programs focused on children and wanted to continue to make a positive impact in their lives.
Since the spring of 2015, Shannon has been spreading joy and confidence as she helps her mentee break out of his shell.
Her most recent favorite memory is working with him on a photography project due the next day in school. Thinking he was unable to complete the project because he didn’t have a camera or a partner, Shannon’s mentee was thrilled when she offered to help! Not only was her mentee able to complete the project, the next week when Sharon came back he was so excited to hell her that he got an A on the project!
Be A Mentor is so grateful for Shannon and all of our mentors. Thank YOU & happy thanksgiving!
