Since 2005 Rogue Valley Mentoring (formerly known as the Rose Circle Mentoring Network) has trained over 480 adults who have mentored over 2,000 youth in our valley. Our no-cost programs serve Jackson County youth, ages 10-24, in one-to-one mentoring relationships and in circles (group mentoring). We vet any safe, caring adult and support them into becoming well-trained, effective mentors who have the ability to change the course of a young person’s life. Mentoring heals trauma. It takes just an hour a week. Join the movement.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, here is an excerpt about the brilliant young woman Anne Frank, from an article in @marieclairemag titled 12 of the Most Famous Women In History:
The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most honest, powerful and poignant accounts of World War II and was written by a German teenage girl. The Franks were a Jewish family living in Germany, then Austria throughout Hitler’s rise to power and during World War II. The family hid in a secret annex with four other people throughout the war but were discovered and sent to concentration camps in 1944. Out of the Frank family, only Anne’s father survived, and he made the decision to publish Anne’s diary.
The Diary of Anne Frank has been translated into almost 70 languages and is an intimate portrayal of one of the most inhumane moments in history and is able to educate us on the universal human qualities of emotion, passion, love, hope, desire, fear and strength.
