'Thank you so much for taking so much time to work with Dylan. It was such an amazing opportunity that he had to work with you and I know that he enjoyed it. I appreciate you being open minded to taking on an “at risk” youth from a detention center. What an opportunity. You are just so awesome. What a blessing you are! Saying thank you simply doesn’t cut it...but that is what I am. Sincerely thankful.' - Casey Velie (Eau Claire County, 180 Program Coordinator)

'To be honest, if it weren’t for (my mentor) I would be in a lot more trouble.' - Youth

‘It's been amazing seeing the transformation of kids from untrusting, cautious and maybe even skeptical, to trusting, laughing, joking, and wanting to be known; desiring a relationship' - Mentor

‘I have seen positive changes within my son that I believe comes from sharing experiences and spending time with his mentor. They’re able to talk about topics like sports and other guy stuff.’ - Parent

‘My son has a hard time trusting people and his mentor has really shown him that he cares and is there for him. He feels like he is a part of his family. We are all so glad that he has come into our lives.’ - Parent

‘I loooooove my mentor. I'm excited for this spring where he will be teaching me how to go musky fishing’ - Youth
