Through expertise and experience of GROW’s founders, boards, and networks, we have been able to mentor many young people as they explore opportunities for professional development—internships, job opportunities, higher education, access to loan funds, and more. Many of these young people first become involved with GROW as volunteers during the earthquake or cholera response or attended classes at the Institute Carver. They became part of our communities as they continued to explore their interests and opportunities that they wanted. Now, many of them are professionals, highly accomplished students, world travelers, and mainstays in their communities. They are now giving back to GROW and to their communities in their own ways and are beginning to mentor others around them as well.
