Ms. Butler became interested in Future 4 Teens because of others who were doing the work. When they introduced her to F4T and she became aware of the work being done and the students who were being helped within the program it sparked her interest in being apart of the work too. Because Ms. Butler is believes strongly in volunteering, her work with F4T fits her own personal commitment to the mission of F4T and helping others who may have suffered hardship. Through this work participants can realize a brighter future ahead of them. She would like to help the youth of this generation cope with growing up in todays environment and know that they can conquer all things and follow their own dreams. Supporting Future 4 Teens is not only supporting our teenagers but supporting our own futures, these youth are the future and we hold the key to helping them develop into bright young successful adults.
