Testimonials

I enjoyed interacting with kids of such a different lifestyle from mine. It made me reflect on my own life and gave me a perspective that I might not have had otherwise.

Anonymous BLAST Academic Mentor

My most positive experience as a BLAST volunteer was when my mentee wrote a poem for me, describing what we did, how good of a mentor I was, and how sad she was that I was leaving. This made me realize that 2 hours of my time each week made a difference in a child’s life.

Anonymous BLAST Academic Mentor

The greatest insight I have learned during my mentoring experience is that kids want to learn. They really want someone to look up to and have guide them. Kids are like sponges, they want to absorb everything around them.
