Each year I try to figure out where I can donate that will make real change in someone's life. This year I am donating to Bolder Options, an activity and healthy lifestyle based mentoring program serving at risk youth. I became involved with Bolder Options in 2008 when I became a mentor to Dontay, who had been struggling in school and had a less than stable home environment. We went running, went to community and cultural events, worked on homework, and attended workshops together. It was an eye opening experience to me, seeing a completely different socio-economic environment, and I think it brought understanding to us both. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has some extra time to donate. (Dontay now gets As and Bs, and is on the Football and Track Team).
