Geri Berholz: Future Possibilities for Kids
Creating possibilities for kids through mentorship
As a schoolteacher, GERI BERHOLZ realized the power of mentoring children. The creation of a Canadian chapter of Future Possibilities For Kids was a natural next step. The concept is to identify kids with leadership potential and match them with a mentor who helps them reach a long-term goal. The results have been nothing short of astonishing. Since its inception in 2002, the lives of over 1300 kids have been transformed. One success story is Kid Coach Yvon, a former at-risk teen, who, because of his work with Geri, is now the first member of his family to graduate high school, graduate college and now attend university. Yvon is well on his way to fulfilling his life-long dream of becoming a peace negotiator for the United Nations.
