Family & Youth Initiatives' Mentoring Coordinator Sarah Spradlin takes great pride in her Art. She does an amazing job creating art projects for the participants. Each of the Art project lessons are complete with a mentoring lesson to help kids deal with anxiety and other at-risk behaviors. Sarah created the OGC DASH logo has in her spare time she visits schools, nursing homes, and other businesses with her therapy dog Tracer. OGC Youth Committee Member Jovi Gorby is the Arts Director and provides insight on what type of art projects to create. Jovi is a freshman at Tecumseh High School and highly committed artist that loves working with younger kids. She utilizes this platform to provide peer-to-peer support that helps all student participants be better versions of themselves
