Evening Highlights

Silver Lining Mentoring’s inaugural Lived Experience Fellow, Jarrett Harper, spoke about his harrowing journey growing up in foster care and his hope for young people to have access to healthy mentoring relationships.

Former Silver Lining mentee Eric James shared how his mentor, Yvonne, provided him the compassionate stability that every young person deserves.

There is a photo collage on the screen behind them with pictures of various activities they did together including biking, fishing, and attending a baseball game.

Silver Lining mentee Cayden and his mentor, Drew–the evening’s Power of Two honorees–reflected on their adventures over the past five years and what their mentoring relationship means to each of them.
