“I’ve witnessed the impact of the program firsthand. The other day, on my lunch break, I was walking downtown, and a young girl who appeared to be in her early 20’s stopped me. She called out, ‘Shannon, hi, remember me?’ It took me a second to recall her face because it had been about five years since I first saw her. She said, ‘You’d be proud of me. Because of you, and Surfrider Spirit Sessions, I was motivated to go to college, and I got a good job. If it hadn’t been for that program, I would’ve dropped out of high school and continued to do bad things. I never knew anything different until I met all of you.’ Made my heart sing and brought tears to my eyes.”
