Students Writing on Board

The Y4Y Youth Mentorship Society Founders

Jillian Castillo

Co-Founder

Hi, I’m Jill! I will be entering my senior year in high school this fall. I am a very social person who enjoys music, writing, and art. Besides my hobbies, I especially take part in engaging in as many volunteer and leadership opportunities as I can. I am enthusiastic to serve as a Co-Founder alongside Gabe for Y4Y! 

 

Gabriel Piano

Co-Founder

I am an incoming Grade 12 student this coming school year. I play basketball and ultimate frisbee for my school teams and in my school’s senior concert band. I enjoy playing video games, listening to music and watching TV.  In our organization Y4Y, I hope to not only help youth in my community but hopefully inspire them to reach their full potential. It takes more than training alone to become your best self, and I believe part of that journey is having a mentor that will motivate you to be your best. I am happy to serve with my co-Founder Jill and my team of volunteers!
