2017 GRIP High School Graduates

It’s been amazing to take part in the high school graduations of many of our students this year! Through your partnership our mentors are walking Life-on-Life with students through high school and beyond. The students below as well as many others have been involved in our programs and are still in Life-on-Life relationships with their mentors.
