KPTM: Community Gives Back for National Mentoring Month

Goodwill was featured in a KPTM story on National Mentoring Month:

[Mentor Kristy Boswell] explains why she got involved mentoring as her way to give back to the community.

“When I grew up, I had a lot of fantastic mentors, and I thought it would be a great way to help someone out the way they helped me out, and without them I don’t know that I would have been able to do some of the things that I’ve gotten to do.”

Now an attorney in Omaha, Boswell is a great role model. But organizers stress that anyone can be a mentor. All you have to do is give up one hour each week.

Morgan Scott, Boswells mentee supports ” I can see that she’s gotten somewhere with her life, she’s been through a lot, and so have I, and maybe I can come out good too.”
