I am a lover of books. I have been reading since the age of three and pretty sure that I have not stopped since. I love delving into a new story and learning more...
How Hershey Inspires Children with Mentorship
Mentorship has always been something that has been incredibly important to me. I was very lucky to have some amazing mentors in my life.
I have played sports pretty much since I could walk. I have had many, many coaches. Some I remember. Some I don't. But what I do remember is the dedication of these coaches. Their commitment to coaching still has stayed with me to this day.
My dad was one of my coaches for years in various sports. He was a great father and a great coach. His mentorship over years made me a better athlete.
One of the best ways that I got mentor others was when my father and I coached Little League baseball together years ago. It was great to do something with my dad and even better to put the skills that he taught me as an athlete to test.
Inspiring children with mentorship and instilling in them the importance of giving back is something that is key with the Milton Hershey School and indeed one of the founding principles of the school.
Did you know that every time you buy Hershey’s, part of the proceeds help provide education, support and opportunity to children in need through the Milton Hershey School? Every time you buy Hershey’s you are giving back to the community!
