BECOME A MENTOR
There are 46 million young people, aged 8 - 18, living in America. 16 million of them are growing up without a mentor.
- Students who meet regularly with their mentors are 52% less likely than their peers to skip a day of school and 37% less likely to skip a class.
- Youth who meet regularly with their mentors are 46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs and 27% less likely to start drinking.
- Seventy-six percent at-risk young adults who had a mentor aspire to enroll in and graduate from college versus half of at-risk young adults who had no mentor. They are also more likely to be enrolled in college.
- Mentoring reduces “depressive symptoms” and increases “social acceptance, academic attitudes and grades.”
Make An Impact
Mentoring creates meaningful connections that can positively impact the lives of both mentor and mentee. Those who receive mentorship are more likely to see improved academic, social, and economic prospects. Those who mentor are able to build important leadership and management skills, while giving back to their community.
Now is the time to get involved and change the life of a young person who needs your support -- it's easy to search for mentoring opportunities in your community!
