Hi everyone, 2016 is in full swing with more teens and mentors than ever before. Nearly 200 of us attended the weekend Beach LYF camp this month. Camp represents the start of the mentor-mentee year long relationship. It was inspiring to see so many people coming together for a weekend of adventure, friendship and new beginnings.
This year we had our biggest volunteer recruitment drive ever with an impressive 165 volunteers submitting applications to mentor with LYF in 2016. From this competitive field we were able to select 92 mentors and 30 casual volunteers to take us forward for what will no doubt be our most successful year yet.
With more teens being mentored and development activities planned for the year, the scope of LYF is continuing to grow. We are currently looking for families, businesses and individuals to come on board as LYF supporters to enable LYF to continue engaging and empowering at risk youth.
