Become a Mentor
Mentoring provides youth with promise and untapped abilities with support and guidance about education and career goals. The program matches youth ages 11-21 with prosocial supportive adults as mentors; recruited from diverse fields including organizations, targeted businesses, civic organizations, professional student organizations, and college majors from criminal justice, social work, or related majors.
Mentors Make A Difference
Children who meet regularly with a mentor are more trusting of their parents and guardians. They also are:
- 52% less likely to skip a day of school
- 46% less likely to start using drugs
- 37% less likely to skip a class
- 27% less likely to start drinking alcohol
There are benefits for mentors too – studies show that mentors gain an increased sense of intrinsic personal and professional satisfaction and enhanced leadership, teaching and communications skills.
