Our agency, Senior Services, Inc. of Wichita, hosted a volunteer luncheon during National Mentoring Month in January. As a special surprise, I sent the "Thank Your Mentor Day" postcards to the mentee in our program. Our mentees are teen moms in Early Head Start. They wrote som lovely notes to their mentors and I presented these at the luncheon. One mentee wrote, "The time we spend together is amazing. You help me so much by just being there. Having someone to talk to and confide in give me so much confidence and joy. Now everything I do is to make the people who care aobut me proud. You are so amazing and you make the room light up when you walk in. You've taught ,e so much and inspire me to succeed and prosper just like you did for your family!" The mentors were very touched to get their notes.
