Imagine going into a store feeling alright about yourself but then coming out feeling confident and rejuvenated, all thanks to a certain cosmetologist. Now imagine you were the person who helped guide this cosmologist as a young adult. You were there as a positive role model in their life. You pushed them to purse their dreams while engaging in art and crafts, listening to amazing music, and maybe even playing with some make-up. Does this sound interesting to you? Then you should consider becoming a Community-Based Precious Mentor! As a community-based mentor you will be matched with a high school mentee, and you get to see them 2-3 hours per week for 1 year. During this time, you can engage in activities and create bond with your mentee.
