When adolescents are made aware of their options, they are more likely to strive for success in all their endeavors. Throughout the five years of my tenure with Peer Power, I have realized that this program has given me the liberty to meet and tutor at-risk youth and gain insight about their outlook on life, emotions, and feelings. I have had the privilege of becoming involved in the lives of these students as an adult figure and watch them develop and become assets to the community. I am afforded the pleasure of educating the youth of our community about the positive pathways of life that are available to them in their mission to become successful adults. Because of this program, I am empowered to become a productive, global citizen in the twenty-first century.
