This month’s Super Mentor is Amber Peterson from Rochester, MN (pictured on the right). Amber recently completed a year with her first mentee and quickly signed up for another year to work with a new kid! By trade, Amber has a successful career as a nurse providing care to adults, but it is her passion for helping kids discover the keys to becoming successful adults, that drives her to invest time as a Bolder Options youth mentor. Amber is quoted as saying, “…if you can form a positive bond with a youth, you can dramatically decrease the likelihood that they will fall into issues with violence, drugs and poor health choices.” The amazing part is that she still makes time to hang out with her first mentee through the Bolder Options alumni program. Amber and her new mentee are off to an awesome start– they have not been matched very long– and have already attended a fun run and picked up school supplies at the back-to-school event. Bolder Options has the best mentors and Amber is proof of that. Thank you Amber for being a truly Super Mentor!
If Amber can sign up twice, consider how you could make this happen in your own life. Find out more about the Bolder Options Alumni Program by clicking here.
