Last Saturday, we hosted our first mentor training day for 2018, the final step before new mentors get matched. The enthusiasm of these 14 new volunteers was infectious – it’s always an inspiration to watch a diverse group of people catch onto the kaupapa of our work, and this training was no different. This group proved that word of mouth is powerful tool – many of the new mentors are friends of current or past BIA mentors. They come from different walks of life, but they all come with hearts for young people. We can’t wait to watch them in the next few months and watch their new relationships unfold!
I’m really looking forward to being part of such an awesome team and contributing to making a generational change!
