IT'S A GREAT TIME TO BE A MENTOR!
Ali, 31 and Serafina, 13 have been matched for about 2 years now. Serafina was involved in other programs at the Funhouse and eventually became aware of the mentor program. “One of my favorite things about having a mentor is having someone to talk to”, says Serafina, and Ali wholeheartedly agrees!
As part of their agreement through the Funhouse mentor program, they have committed to spend at least 4 hours a month together, doing an activity of their choice. At the beginning of COVID things changed for a bit and they were meeting virtually once a week. Now, they are able to safely get out again and are enjoying nature walks, either on the trails or beaches.
