National Nonprofit Day: Honoring Our Mentors

August 17th is National Nonprofit Day, and this year we’re celebrating by honoring and acknowledging the commitment and incredible contributions of our volunteer mentors. Our mentors have devoted their time and energy to transform the lives of young people in our community. Their unwavering commitment to making a difference is a testament to the power of human connection and compassion. Lets celebrate our mentors and the positive impact they have on our youth and community!

When joining NPFY and Level Up, you learn that having a relationship with a stable, caring adult is the number one key to intervention when dealing with toxic stress and adverse childhood experiences. Our mentors play a vital role in fostering these relationships, offering guidance, support, and a listening ear to our youth. By building trust and rapport, mentors provide a safe space for young people to share their dreams, challenges, and aspirations. Through regular one-on-one meetings, mentors consistently show up, empower, and inspire their mentees to strive for a brighter future. This is the key to dealing with toxic stress and mitigating the impact it can have on our youth, and generations to come.

Our purpose is to ensure that every young person can live their life with joy and purpose, confident in their ability to decide their own path, and that is done with the help of our mentors. By providing your experiences, skills and support that your mentee can learn from, they can make more informed decisions and create opportunities for growth and success.

If it hasn’t been said enough, THANK YOU for being a mentor. Your efforts and dedication does not go unnoticed, and we want to support you in any way possible. Happy National Nonprofit Day, and thank you again to our amazing volunteers.
