This month we conducted our first volunteer run Guest Speakers PLUS ME program at South El Monte High School and Sal Castro Middle School. We brought four inspiring successful adults from the film/media/marketing fields to inspire over 200 students. Here are some thoughts from these volunteers about the journey.
"It was such a fulfilling experience to be able to give back to the students in a way that I wish others did for me as a kid. Being in those rooms made me realize how important it is for these kids to have good role models to inspire them. These students inspired me just as much, if not more, than I feel I inspired them. What the PLUS ME project is doing is AMAZING! Every school should be integrated with their program."
"We were asked to share our stories and inspire the next generation, but in return we walked out of these schools just as inspired. It truly meant a lot to see kids stick around after the presentation to engage with us and talk about their dreams!"

"One of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Greatness begins and ends for me with who else I can make great."
