We know that nothing is better for the human heart than reaching out to help another person. Studies have shown mentored youth have a better chance of going on to higher education; make better choices with regard to substance abuse; and display more positive social attitudes.
MENTOR is working to close the mentoring gap community by community by supporting our network of Mentoring Partnerships, developing training and technical assistance resources and collaborating with our national partners to promote mentoring research and special initiatives.
In order to insure continued support for the
3 million mentoring relationships currently in existence, and recruitment of quality mentors for the 15 million children who are still waiting, the mentoring movement needs support from the public sector, private sector and individuals. We have provided here a number of impactful ways you can make a difference.
Thank you for your support!
