Pear - Creatively Mentoring Homeless Youth


“My City”

I stumbled upon a non-profit organization that mentors youth. The project’s aim is to help kids using education and art-recreation. So far I’ve had good experiences; it allows me to explore skills such as cooking, photography, drawing, painting. I’ve learned that a good organization such as this can be a place to meet new people. I have been developing new strategies through conversation with the volunteers, and interactions with the staff. It has taught me that connections with people can be made independent of background, and across boundaries of class or financial situations.
