Sharing Our Stories Promo

Usually, when someone says SOS it means trouble. But on the Georgia Parent Mentor Partnership website, the message is community.

I’m Jane Grillo, the editor for the website and I want to tell you about SOS Sharing Our Stories, offering the unique stories of parent mentors in their own voices. We believe by telling our stories ourselves it will be like casting out our message to the world… hoping that just the right person will hear it.
