Mentor or Tutor a Student


“It is one thing to stand before a classroom full of students and teach, or share, or listen.  It is always the hope that you are reaching at least one.  I have opted to reach my one through CIS.  But the funny thing is ~ I am the one that has gained and gleaned so much from my friendship with my student.  So many are missing out on the potential to make a positive difference in a budding adult’s life.  Go ahead, get started, be the one to make a difference.”  Kim Morgan Fink
