Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A day for all of us to work to improve lives, bridge social barriers, and move our nation closer to the “Beloved Community” that Dr. King envisioned. Today is a day of service, but we don't have to stop there. We can resolve to make this a year of service and make a real difference in our community!

Begin today. Continue the work. Make a difference. Volunteer!

Off the Streets and Giving Back

Jimmy Battle grew up in foster care. He made some bad choices, sold drugs and spent time in prison. But with the help of a D.C. non-profit and the guidance of a mentor he was able to turn his life around. Now he returns the favor. He mentors young men who are "struggling" in the community and he shares with them what he has learned. Jimmy leads by example, showing young men that they have more choices than they might realize and that they must have discipline in the face of adversity.

January Training is Moving

January 2010 mentor training dates will still be held on the 13th and 25th at 6pm. However, the trainings will now take place at Immanuel UCC, 402 E. Prospect St. instead of Trusted Mentors office.

We currently have more signed up for the 13th training than we can accommodate at our office (a good thing!).

If you have any questions, please feel free to call 985-5041.
