Ascending: Highlights of our mission in action
Dan, one of our first participants, has made tremendous strides since he became a part of Ascend Mentoring in late 2013. As our first match, Dan was paired with his mentor Joe. Since then, utilizing Joe’s guidance, Dan has graduated from high school, obtained full time employment, and recently bought his first car. Dan credits Joe for keeping him focused on his life goals. Joe knew from the beginning that Dan had the potential to do great things and with a bit of proper direction, he could achieve his goals. Their mentoring partnership has grown so strong that Joe and Dan have recommitted for a second year of a mentoring partnership.
