Yesterday True North Ministry had the privilege of bringing staff, mentors, and mentees to a recognition banquet on the 31st floor of the Vern Riffe building in downtown Columbus. Youth Da’shawn and Shaqueill, who have been in the program for up to a year, were awarded a certificate and enjoyed a day of great speakers. They also had the opportunity to connect with youth in the program from other cities in Ohio.
The fact that these young men woke up at 6:30 am and rode two hours to the banquet speaks volumes of their desire to change their lives as well as their love for the mentoring program. Since their release from prison Da’shawn is finishing his high school diploma and Shaqueill has started working a job.
True North is impacting the lives of youth. Thank you to all the mentors who have made it possible for imprisoned youth to be successful in Jesus Christ!
