“I have been able to experience kids breaking out of their shells and becoming more comfortable with others.”

“The best part is getting to connect with somebody you normally wouldn’t and try to become part of their life and somebody they can trust. It was also great to be able to talk about things in a group that you know you can trust.”

“Mentoring allows us to meet new people and at the same time learn more about leadership and different problems in our community.”


“Without FNL, I would never have met the friends I have now.”

“I would recommend this to a friend because it brings everyone together.”

The best part of mentoring is: “Being able to talk about how you feel to someone trustworthy and you get to have fun.”

FNL Club Members

“It gives students like me a place to belong.”

“As a kid, my family had a lot of troubles. Sometimes I was left alone. I always counted on programs like this to help me find my way through it all. I want to keep these programs alive for kids like me.”

“FNL is important to me because, it is one of the few (possible only) programs in my community that helps to prevent the use of drugs and alcohol in students.”

“I get to take action in my community and change it for the better.”

“Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor.”
