“Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.” – Erma Bombeck

Dear Mentors,Thank You

The success of Mentoring USA is a reflection of the dedication and enthusiasm that you as a volunteer have displayed on a continual basis throughout the year.

Mentoring USA programs sites throughout New York City continue to be a resounding success, and we couldn’t have done it without you! The Site Supervisors, Program Mangers, and our Partner Agencies, Community Centers and Schools appreciate your gift of time, energy and enthusiastic support. We would like to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt “Thank You!”

We look forward to working with you again in the fall.

Mentor Spotlight: Susan WeekesSusan Weekes

Verizon Corporate Mentor / PS 154 / Mentor since 2004

 ‘Being a good mentor is a hard thing to do. It takes a serious commitment that takes precious time away from other important things – getting a job done, social life, family, etc. It helps  my mentee to see that there is someone who cares for him outside his family. I try to help him in all areas of his life and bring him care packages about hygiene. I help him with homework, we play math and word games. Overall it just gives me great pleasure.”
