Mentoring

At Knox Extreme Sports we do believe that Love does Win. Love can, and will change the world.

“Being loved deeply by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu

The definition of the word “mentor” is advise or train (someone, especially a younger colleague).  This requires sacrifice, commitment of time and energy. This requires love. We believe deeply in the power of personal investments in each other. Mentoring is a fundamental component of reaching our mission. This is where the seeds of hope are sown, and the potential of the power of multiplication is sparked.

We are partnering with other non-profits with a similar heart and mission (think Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, etc.) to expand mentoring opportunities to our youth.

“I do not agree with the big way of doing things. To us what matters is an individual. To get to love the person we must come in close contact with him. If we wait until we get the numbers, then we will be lost in the numbers. And we will never be able to show that love and respect for the person.” – Mother Teresa
