Each month, Alternatives For Girls’ Volunteer Department, highlights one volunteer who AFG staff recognize as being a dedicated and passionate volunteer. This month we spotlight Dale Henderson, a mentor in AFG’s Prevention Program!
Dale has been involved with AFG for over a year. She first joined as a volunteer for the after-school program, then the Rise N’ Shine summer camp, and now as a mentor. Additionally, Dale is always willing to lend a hand and has volunteered in several other capacities throughout the past year!
Dale’s goal as a mentor is to be a positive role model for participants and demonstrates this by being a caring and responsible adult. Moreover, Dale explains that one of her strengths is her ability to relate to youth on their own level, which helps her at AFG. It is important to “be patient, get to know youth on their own terms, and reach them wherever they are,” Dale explains.
Thank you, Dale, for your ongoing commitment to supporting the girls and young women at Alternatives For Girls.
