Mentors on Mentoring by Geoff Chin

I became a Casa Chirilagua mentor because… I care about the kids in my community

The best part about being a Casa Chirilagua mentor is… it helped me gain a perspective that I applied in my relationship with my parents.

The coolest thing my mentee has taught ME is… how to do wicked tricks on a bicycle.
