Quinton was referred to this mentoring program because of not meeting the school‘s social and curriculum standards. Quinton is one of many in our school system that are lost souls not understanding his place in his world, what life offers to him, and not having hope or faith to have dreams/goals. Quinton was lucky to get into this program because someone paid attention to him and his needs. So many like Quinton get lost in the system and continue to fail in normal life’s roles. To overcome these obstacles, Quinton and I look at my career and the work I do for Xcel Energy. Quinton became very astute to how Natural Gas Distribution works, how it helps our Community and why Xcel Energy does what it does. Quinton and I also, interviewed the School Principal, two police officers, and a School Councilor. We would also, look at weekly/monthly periodical for what is happening in our society and around the world. We looked at grocery ads, housing and other basic needs to remind us of what is important to understand and how we fit in and that we are something special. Quinton is finding his way now to better grades, more social skills, and bravery. He is moving in a good life direction and has more skills to rely on. This story about Quinton and our adventures into mentoring needs to be heard because unlike individuals stories of personal tragedy, abuse, and mental crudity, Quinton’s story is the most common and will contribute to a landslide of individual students that will be lost in the mix of the education institutions, education political agenda, and parents that are doing the best they can. Struggling families used to be in the minority and now kids like Quinton are in the majority and can be saved or headed in the right direction with programs like this and allowing schools and teachers to teach.
