On Friday, December 6, 2013, VET2MENTOR (Co-Founders, Solange Delmar and John Caraballo – Alumni) along with Students Against Hunger (SAH) co-hosted an event at Nyack College for over 80 teenagers from various detention centers throughout the New York City area. Christmas came early for these teenagers. They dined together, were ministered to thorough music artists, and inspired with messages of hope from soldiers and veterans, and also received gift bags of hope.
The student Social Work Organization (SWO), student body, and alumni were all available to serve the teens and help with the event.
The VET2MENTOR mission: Mentoring, Empowering and Inspiring youth ages 12-18 especially those adjudicated and bringing Soldiers and Veterans together to accomplish the task.
Lives will be changed forever because of this one act of kindness.
