“ I was impacted by a coach in a way that I never thought I could be. She really opened up her heart to me, and I was able to be vulnerable with her…tell her about all my problems, my celebrations, ask her questions about life, Jesus, and just anything. Coaches at MAM actually care about you. They want to know who you are as a person and what you do outside of MAM, and they want to build connections with you.” – Coach Oveira

“I’m not just a coach. I get to be a mentor, a role model, and most importantly a regular human that our youth can relate to. I get to be the coach for our youth that a coach was once for me.” – Coach Ahdai
