CUMMING Ga. — Mentors and their mentees from Forsyth County attended a recent Gwinnett Gladiators hockey game at the Gwinnett Arena. It is just one of the many fun activities that Mentor Me sponsors throughout the year for volunteer mentors and their mentees.

Mentor Me North Georgia is a local non-profit organization committed to making a difference in the lives of children and young people through mentoring programs.

Mentor Bill Schabel and his mentee Brian, a student at South Forsyth Middle School, enjoyed the hockey game with the group. Brian is Bill's third mentee. "When I decided to become a mentor, originally I just wanted to help someone," he explained. "But I soon learned that mentoring was more than just a way to give back, it's just so much fun doing things together. Hunting is one of the things Brian and I enjoy most. I'm teaching him how to hunt, and we have a great time. More important, we have become close friends. I recommend mentoring to anyone who wants to make difference in a young person's life."

"I just enjoy spending time with him and doing fun things together. Bill has become almost like a second father," Brian said,

Sylvia Cardona, Executive Director of Mentor Me North Georgia said "Everyone had so much fun, and it was great to see our mentees enjoy themselves. Outings like this not only give the kids and their mentors the opportunity to have fun and build their relationships, but they all get to know each other better. And, it helps the kids to continue developing their social skills."

Mentor Me provides traditional one-on-one mentoring relationships between adult volunteers and children and young people. Children between the ages of six and 17 who need and want a mentor are matched with adults who can serve as role models.
