A Story of Local Love: Someone To Look Up To

Young girl waving at mentor through computer screen

A mother contacted our office saying that she could see that her young daughter was struggling during COVID-19. She asked for a mentor. We were able to match her with one of our college co-op students. During their weekly meetings the mentor was able to build a friendship with the girl. They did various activities over the virtual platform. When the college placement was finished the mother told us about the positive impact the relationship had had on her daughter’s mental health. She asked if we could provide additional support. Luckily our college student could also see the impact of the program. Even though her placement is finished, she will continue to have regular meetings with her mentee.
