I was pleased to be one of five Sabino Canyon Volunteer Nationalists (SCVN) to take 12-17 year old youth, who are participating in Goodwill Industries GoodGuides mentoring program, hiking on Mt. Lemmon last week.

Funded by a two-year grant to Goodwill Industries International from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Goodwill GoodGuides program is run by 56 independent Goodwill agencies around the country. 

The goal of the GoodGuides program is to help youth build career plans and skills, and prepare for school completion, post-secondary training, and productive work.

This is the second year SCVN has provided a guided hike on Mt. Lemmon for students in the GoodGuides program, most of which have never been hiking in the Santa Catalina mountains.
