When you think of Goodwill, you probably think about cleaning out your closet or getting a great deal. But the stores just fund the mission and that mission has a huge impact on our community. This week, we are joined by Alecia Brewster, GoodGuides Program Manager. GoodGuides is a youth mentoring program for kids between the ages of 12 and 17 who are at risk for poor school performance. Alecia shares with us what the program is all about and how it helps kids keep an eye on the future. January is Mentor Awareness Month so it’s a great time to get involved. Think you are ready to make the commitment? Get in touch with Alecia today – (864)320-2912. Mentored youth are: 52% less likely to skip a day of school 46% less likely to start using drugs 37% less likely to skip a class 27% less likely to start drinking More trusting of their parents or guardians You can find out about all of the great programs that Goodwill of the Upstate/Midlands contributes back into our community (over 90 cents on every dollar of revenue generated at the stores!) at http://goodwillsc.org/.
