Youth need caring adults to help prepare them for post-secondary education and career opportunities. Shyra is a sophomore at a local high school who has been participating in the Priceless Girls Mentoring program for the past year. Before her involvement, she said that life was boring, and her only activity was on the school cheer team.
Since joining Truly Valued's mentoring program, Shyra has started paying attention to the social issues that plague her generation, especially young women. Issues that weren't on a fifteen-year-old girl's radar have become important priorities that she discusses passionately with friends and family.
Now, Shyra wants to do more with her life. She hopes to train to be a Registered Nurse after high school because she likes to help others. Through Truly Valued's collaborations, Shyra had the rare opportunity to shadow a medical program that will assist her in defining her career and educational goals.
Shyra maintains a 3.0 GPA, attends a place of worship with her family, and is involved in the community. She is excited about the summer college tour and other growth activities that she can now look forward to through Truly Valued.
Without YOU, Shyra would still be a bored teenage girl.
Thanks to YOU, Shyra now has big dreams of doing and being more, both personally and professionally.
Thanks to YOU, Shyra knows she is Truly Valued.
Shyra and so many other Truly Valued girls need YOU to help make their dreams come true.
Thank you for your support!
