‘Love and guidance’

Zaida White traces the connection she feels with youth to her days in the military.

“For some reason after my basic training, I was always in charge of young people,” she said. “I was always able to relate and talk to young people and encourage them.”

So, when she received a vision from God last year to start her own organization for youth, she got to work.

More than eight months later, she has about 15 children enrolled in her youth mentorship program called From the Heart.

“We are trying to enhance the good things they are already doing,” she said. “And if they are straying or thinking about doing something they shouldn’t, we will turn that around before it gets out of hand.”
