- $1,500 sends one of our professionals to a national mentoring conference.
A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
The true power of mentoring can best be articulated through the nomination submitted for the 2014 Mentor of the Year, which is an award MMP gives out annually. Here is how mentee Peggy feels about her mentor, Dakotah:
I’ve been through a lot in my life. When I was 12 and went to jail, the only person who wrote to me was my mom and my mentor, Dakotah. When I got out, Dakotah was still there. She didn’t have to stay with me but did. She has NEVER given up on me because a lot of people have and I don’t blame them. When you have someone who cares and loves for you like she does, you start having hope. She’s helped me understand things I never could and helped me onto my feet again when I couldn’t myself.
