I have been in Teammates since I was 13 years old. I am now 19 and with my fourth mentor. This program built my self confidence in ways I can never repay. Stephanie and I email each other regularly, just to talk about life and its obstacles.
When I was hopeless and without direction, Teammates was there to build me back up mentally, fiscally, and financially. With the support of the Mentors Foundation and the computer they provided, I was able to find a great job close to campus and my home. Now I have saved enough money to fix my car and I am worry free.
Teammates and the Mentors Foundation are by far the most amazing programs I have ever known. Last semester I traveled to middle schools and spoke to students about the tremendous value of mentoring. I am confident in my ability to pave my way in this world all the while impacting others with the same support you all have given me. Thank you!
Hi, Stephanie here. The support of Mentors Foundation has had a ripple effect on Cheyenne’s life and those around her. I would just like to say thank you all for the hard work you do. Cheyenne has flourished this last year. She pays for everything on her own; her duplex, car, clothing, food and much more. She also donates her time to the girls in BoysTown here in Omaha. Again, THANK YOU ALL!!
