Every week, I get to make a difference in a child’s life. It may be gradual, but my hope is that eventually this child defies his label as an “at-risk youth.” Matthew, a third grader from an underprivileged home, lives with a single mother in a dangerous area of town. He is considered a high-risk child due to low academic achievement and a poor home situation. Each week, I visit him at his elementary school where we play sports, read, and talk. Since mentoring began last semester, Matthew and I have gotten very close. He often calls me his big brother and I can truly see him as my little brother. I plan to mentor him for as long as I am living in Gainesville, and I hope that I can help guide him to a life away from poverty and crime.

Because of ATO, I joined a campus organization called UGA HEROs, which provides quality-of-life programs for children in Georgia that are infected or affected by HIV and AIDS. Georgia has more than 12,000 cases of reported pediatric and adolescent HIV/AIDS and a fourth of the children in the H.E.R.O. program have lost a parent to HIV or AIDS-related complications. Not only does the illness affect their lives in some capacity, but 96 percent of the children’s families also have a household income of just $10,000 or less.
