Mentors celebrated at appreciation dinner

March 19, 2014

Youth Villages’ Chris Crye Mentoring Program recently held an appreciation dinner to honor Memphis-area mentors for devoting their time and serving as positive role models to the kids Youth Villages serves.

Mentors enjoyed a Cajun and Creole buffet provided by Owen Brennan’s. The mentoring department presented each mentor with a certificate and gave away Youth Villages items as door prizes. Guests heard from a current mentor and mentee, who shared how their mentoring experience has been a rewarding experience for both of them.

The mentoring department also welcomed Elliot Perry, former University of Memphis and Memphis Grizzlies basketball player, as the guest speaker on behalf of the Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation, a partner of the Youth Villages Chris Crye Mentoring Program. Perry shared his own experience of having a childhood mentor who positively influenced him and helped him become successful.

All guests had a great time sharing their mentoring experiences with each other. The dinner was generously sponsored by Concero Resources.
