July 10 - Mentoring Session

Considered by most to be the crown jewel of the weekend, the Mentoring Session was held at the St. Louis Airport Hilton. Over 750 youth had the chance to see their favorite celebrities and ask questions. Missouri Governor Bob Holden greeted the youth, and they heard from the celebrities that education and belief in self and God are the keys to achieving their dreams. Parents, mentors and role models can help them along the way.
