We were once taught by one of our mentors that words can't truly explain a feeling, it's just something you have to experience. That held true about yesterday. Words cannot express how we appreciate you all for not just coming but emerging, interacting, and being a example for our youth.
Yesterday was our first volunteer event, “Service Meets Connection”. This was not your average community service and network event. This was the first event (probably in Chicago lol) that ties community service, mentoring at risk youth, and connecting people together through a common purpose.
To our volunteers:
We could not picture it happening any better. Thank you for exposing our youth to more through your stories and experiences, because of that, they believe they can become more.
