Mentorship at APCH

Hear from previous APCH members


“APCH fosters us even though we come from a tough neighborhood. Anything is possible with hard work, mentorship and a community.”


“My mentor [at APCH] has inspired and motivated me to be a better person. She is always pushing me to build new and better habits!”


“Now that I’m building my future, this place gave me hope to move to do what I want to do. Make me build me the way I want to do it, not the way people around me were peer pressuring me to do.”
