Thanks to My Mentor: Marie

Marie has been a mentor in The Bridge’s Youth Advocacy Program for several years. Below, her mentee match Karen shares (in her own words) what their relationship means to her:



I’m lucky to have several mentors in the program who help me.  Marie helped me apply for a very competitive summer camp for students interested in engineering.  Even though I wasn’t selected, I learned a lot and I know it will help me apply to colleges next.  I am a runner and Pat invited me to go with her to watch the Chicago marathon one year where I was even able to cheer one of my teachers on.  It was great to be able to go see something like that in the city and it makes me want to try a marathon someday.
