Project Ready Mentoring Program,

“Janelle Lasley answered the call to mentorship immediately when she received an email that Project Ready was looking for mentors. Her participation in the program has shown tremendous dedication throughout mentor training, group mentoring events, service-learning events and college tours. She has also gone beyond the call of duty by participating in virtual mentoring through texting and emailing her mentees, spending time with them outside of Project Ready activities and bonding with her mentees’ mother.
Janelle Lasley is our 2012 Mentor of the Year, and we are honored to have her serve in our endeavors to prepare youth for college, work and life!”
