Mentor Month Spotlight: River City Youth Foundation

01.24.2011 | UNCATEGORIZED

As we enter the final week of National Mentor Month, we’d like to share this video entirely created by students at the River City Youth Foundation.

RCYF provided details of the project:
During the winter of 2009, River City Youth Foundation “My Hero!” mentoring program held a holiday camp that included a music portion. The children who had a desire to write positive lyrics about mentoring and Dove Springs were coached by River City Youth Foundation mentors and Jason Birdwell. Through encouragement from adults and other children, they were empowered to rap to their own lyrics in the studio, play instrumental tracks (guitar, bass guitar and percussion), create loops from software, and record video tracks that make up the entire content of “Come Mentor Us.”
