1 in 3 young people will grow up without a mentor.
Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter.
Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations.
Ultimately, mentoring provides meaningful connections that impact the people involved and influence their lives at home, at work, and in their communities.
