Teen Mentoring

April 4th, 2011

4-4-11The Youth Guidance group in Vero Beach is dedicated to serving the needs of nearly 700 children in this area of Indian River County. I was invited by Dee Giannotti, one of the long term board members, to speak to the teen mentoring group of children and adults. The teen mentoring group of youth guidance meets once a week and the message I have dovetails with what they are accomplishing as they “expose the children to as many life enriching experiences including developing personal life philosophies,” as Dee puts it.
My talk was about trying to inspire the children as well as adults to live their lives as role models. I handed out Kindness Certificates and was thrilled when some of the children asked for multiple copies for their siblings and friends. After dinner everyone talked about the next kind act they were going to perform.
Thank you to all board members and executive director, Barbara Schlitt Ford for the invite to address this group and thank you to Ginny Rhodes for capturing as many of us as she could in today’s photo.
