Community Service Credits

71Five has taught me to work with younger kids and to be an example,” Charlie responded when asked how Youth 71Five Ministries has impacted his life. He is a 17-year-old young man who spends a day a week at the Station 71Five Community Center. What started as community service credits has transformed into a mentoring relationship. Recently Charlie was with me when I was approached about meeting with another young man. It was explained that many had given up on him because the boy is a foster kid with ADHD and has officially been labeled a troublemaker. Later that evening Charlie shared how he was once exactly like that boy. He was amazed that every detail reminded him of his younger self and revealed how much he’s changed due to ongoing mentoring relationships.
You make this type of transformation possible by providing trusting relationships to young people. Thank you for partnering with us.
