Now, at 23, he identifies as being in long term recovery and is grateful for the opportunity to give back exactly what was given to him - guidance, direction, and care.

Get a Youth Mentor

“[My mentor] helped me get my life back in order by first teaching me how to set realistic goals, getting me into sober housing, and then provided transportation to enroll into school. … I think having a mentor helped keep me accountable and challenged me to achieve my goals. It was the best tool I’ve had in my recovery!”
