Sidekicks Having Fun 

A quote from one of our Sidekicks mentees:
"Sidekicks Program is so awesome especially for kids like me and my siblings! They made us confident and they help explore a lot of things. They made us be in the community I feel valued. I am not afraid anymore to talk to other people. I am always excited for our Sidekicks activities and my mom’s Momentum program. I love seeing Ms. Lorraine, Cyndi, Ted and Sam and all of them. They are all kind and generous and nice. We love them."
