His smile lights up the room! Dylen’s physical energy and struggle to focus on the task in front of him can at times cause chaos in the classroom. Through a 1:1 mentoring relationship with an adult who meets Dylen during his school day, United Way Oxford works to support kids in the places they are meant to thrive. Dylen has more than a mentor — he has a friend. A friend that encourages and empowers him. A friend that helps Dylen to build resiliency and work towards his goal of attending school, in a regular classroom, on a more regular basis. Dylen is working hard and is on the path to be all he can be.
