Tom, KidStart Volunteer Mentor

“It is a pleasure being a part of KidStart. If there is one thing I have learned, being a volunteer, it is to just ‘stick with it’ because you are making a huge difference in someone’s life. As with most relationships, the foundation is based on shared experiences so the more time you put in with your little buddy, the more experiences you’ll share and the stronger your relationship will be. This is regardless of whether or not you have lots in common. You don’t need to be their best friend; you just need to be someone they can count on.”
