Tiffany Lewis stated- “As a youth advocate and leader, mentoring programs give us each a chance to contribute to the youth in our communities by providing guidance, friendship and life experience of a mentor. This day is more than just a national day. The day is an acknowledgment of all they will accomplish. Guidance, leadership and mentors will help light the path, and today’s youth will navigate the
obstacles that will inevitably lay before them. It’s a Celebration of Confidence”!
