My hope for our teens is that they will experience God’s unconditional love through our mentors. As a recent immigrant from Mexico to the South Bronx, Rosa felt totally out of place in school and had a difficult time making friends. But when she joined our afterschool program two years ago, Rosa found a haven in a chaotic city where she was free to be herself. Because her mentors recognize and value her personality and skills, Rosa has opened up to those around her. She told me recently that the love she's received from our program have caused her to view God as one who cares about her.
