Ezra Dubowitz started mentoring with Open Field in 2018 as part of a service project. Ezra was always interested in finding a way to combine his two passions, soccer and social justice. When he discovered Open Field, he knew he wanted to be involved. As a high school student, Ezra's mentoring schedule varies. During the school year, he believes that mentoring is not that complicated to schedule as long as you “stay diligent to what needs to get done.” In the summer, Ezra attends his own soccer practice in the mornings, then volunteers to help with Open Field in the evenings.
Ezra encourages others to find organizations that interest them and get involved because “Volunteering and mentoring are two of the most rewarding things an individual can take part in because the impact on youth that are being mentored is significant and noticeable.”
