Mentoring and showing kids early on that they have hope and good options in front of them can turn their lives around.
Clifford and Kathleen are both educators but are more than just smart and talented, they're also engaged at a grassroots level. They have both been active in a program called RSVP, the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program. They've worked for the past four years at a site in Harlem, Women's Advocate Ministry (WAMWAM), where they mentor children who have a parent in prison.
Kathleen and Clifford bring hope and help to kids who need it most. They are striving to make these relationships a lifetime commitment as they work one-on-one with these children. As professional educators, they understand first hand that feeding the curious mind of a youngster and introducing the disciplined thought that education brings to a young life offer the best chance for kids to lead a full, informed, and ultimately satisfying life.
