Jaclyn is a Youth Villages mentor and has mentored Raygan, now a freshmen in college, for nearly a year. While Jaclyn has helped Raygan successfully transition into adulthood, she says mentoring Raygan has changed her life, too. “I wonder whose life has been greater impacted by our relationship, because Raygan has taught me so much.

She knows her past does not define her, but can help her become the person she hopes to become.” Learn more about mentoring at ow.ly/5DFN30nhehg... See MoreSee Less
