Gratitude Transforms Lives
Article Published: November 9, 2017
“Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings,” – William Arthur Ward.
This Thanksgiving season we are grateful for dear partners and volunteers who help us impact lives in our community. Our Banking on Our Youth mentors and instructors help us make this possible.
With classes once a month, the instructors not only expose our students to valuable practical lessons about finances and entrepreneurship but also provide learning opportunities about different career options, life goals, discipline, teamwork among many other topics. Our BOY mentors are dedicated partners that invest in our students by meeting with them once a month as well as reaching out to them outside of their meeting time. The mentors help students stay accountable, provide support for assignments, and encourage their mentees in different aspects of their lives.
Thank you, mentors and instructors, for your time, dedication and willingness to help us transform the lives of our forty-five BOY students! We are grateful for great partners like you!
