I appreciate everything that all of you do to push the vision forward. I am blessed for my Power Team and I appreciate you all for your true willingness to serve others.

"Imagine program has helped me find who I am and push me out of my comfort zone to become a woman who believes in herself... Now I have the confidence to do anything that I dream of and can help others who have gone through the same struggles as me..."
– Arnee Snowden
"Imagine has been a blessing. The opportunity to connect with our youth, share life experiences and be a safe haven for them to be transparent about their struggles and goals in life is rewarding. We are like family! Growing up, I wish I had a program to participate in like Imagine. You'd be amazed at the challenges some of our youth is going through and without a support system. It made me appreciate my hardships because now I know what to say and do to support them through theirs. To witness the growth and change in each mentee is an awesome experience."
– Martina Smith, IMAGINE Mentor
"I want you to know that what you do for other people is amazing, you take time out of your day, just to make sure that other people are having a good one and I thank you for that. We need more people like you in this world. I know that IMAGINE will bring opportunities to young girls all over the world and that is all because of the fact that you care and it speaks for itself. You have changed my life!!!!"
– Shayla Blair
"To I.M.A.G.I.N.E is to learn, but to learn is to grow. That is what I.M.A.G.I.N.E has done for me. From living in a certain disaster to living a dream. Living to reach unseen limits; Limits that I refuse to let someone else set for me and for that I can say I can IMAGINE!"
– Lynette Davis
I just wanted to say thank you for teaching me techniques on how to love myself more, how to feel beautiful; how to open up more and release the pain, heal and remove hate to allow love to come in. I just appreciate you for that.
-Jakeshia Thompkins, IMAGINE Mentee 2017-2018
Not only are you fantastic, loving and a caring person, I love you for your tenacity even when you are going through your own problems. Thank you for being here for me. Your perseverance, integrity and people-loving nature are just a few of your qualities that continue to inspire me. Thank you for being my mentor. I am so lucky to have met someone who inspires me every day. Thank you for your guidance and leadership.

I appreciate you Ms. Garth because you taught me things that I didn’t even understand. You taught me that my mind has the capacity of 195 countries. I take everything you teach me and teach other people that I can carry on to different generations. Thank you for encouraging me and allowing me to be a part of IMPACT.
-Brandon McBooth, IMPACT Mentee 2017-2018
IMPACT is like a diary but a male version. It’s a non-judgmental program where I can vent and talk negative or positive or if I wanted to just break down and cry if I need to I can at IMPACT. I’ve overcame fear and saw others overcome their fears and it motivates them to be better than how they were. I think IMPACT should be everywhere in the world because it helps so many young people get on their feet. I had no idea what I wanted to do with myself but being in IMPACT really showed me who I am. Thank you Ms. Garth for pulling that out of me.
-Javan Lee, IMPACT Mentee 2017-2018
I am so blessed to have you in my life. You have been there for me through it all. I just can’t thank you enough. I love the bond we have; from tears to laughter, you have been there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on and you have been there to wipe my tears away and tell me to keep my head up. You are like a mother to me. I can go on and on but I am not. I love you so much. Thank you.
