Mentoring is important because, “not only would you be helping a young adult better prepare for the future and help him/her increase their chance of future success, you get the opportunity to show them they are valued and important. To see the impact that has on them is very touching and leaves you gaining much more than you could ever expect.”- Big Sister Paula
