A Brownsville teen has found mentoring can impact the lives of a younger generation.
Craig Millington, 16, can relate to the students he now mentors. He never was a fan of homework, but now he is helping kids different subjects and skills.
Those same skills helped him during the years he was mentored, and now he is paying it forward to fourth and fifth-graders at the Cornerstone After School Program through the Young Men's Initiative.
The New York City Department of Youth and Community Development has expanded the initiative to all five boroughs with a total of 700 students being mentored.
