"A DAY ON, NOT OFF": MENTORSHIP IS AN ACT OF SERVICE
On Monday, January 18, not only do we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy, but we are also reminded that we honor him through the power of service.
Briceson Isaac's journey with The Salvation Army is a full circle. As the Outreach Coordinator at our Young Adult Resource Center (YARC), his story is one of commitment to our community.
Briceson himself found The Salvation Army through YARC; where he not only found help to get to work, but also hope, opportunity, and purpose. He says, "I am a living testimony, I am a living example of coming in the program, getting myself together and thriving."
We celebrate Briceson for his amazing accomplishments and dedication to making an impact through his unwavering guidance to help clients find a path to self-sufficiency and success.
YARC is a no-judgment zone that treats clients with dignity and respect, allowing clients to seek connections to permanent housing, education, and job training when they are ready. It operates as a drop-in center for young adults, ages 18 to 25, who need housing, emergency support, tutoring, and family re-engagement.
Acts of services as simple as feeding someone in need, helping young adults find employment, or giving hope to someone for the future through mentorship at YARC can change the trajectory of someone's life.
Dr. King, Jr. said, "Life's most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?"
YARC is an opportunity for leaders in our community to provide knowledge to those who need us the most. To walk a path in unison with those we wish to model our lives after while serving in His name.
We hope today and every day, you explore the power of mentorship.
