Snow Mentor: February 12 & 13

Snow Mentor hit the slopes of Belleayre Mountain (New York) and Snow Summit (California) this past weekend. Good times were had all around! Like always, Stoked Sophia and Stoked Charlie did an incredible job running the program days. The volunteers were invaluable in making the days run smoothly. Many thanks to all the Stoked teens from New York and LA as well as the Children of Promise & Youth Mentoring Connection crews who joined us on the slopes for Snow Mentor this past weekend.
