Caring mentors help teens face every-day challenges, find opportunities, and take control of their future.
Teenage years can be challenging.
- Staying motivated in school
- Being uncertain about the future
- Wanting independence, but lacking skills and resources
How can you help?
Volunteer as a mentor!
Youth who have a mentor are more likely to:
- Attend high school regularly and graduate
- Go to college or get vocational training
- Be employed
- Have more positive attitudes and social connections
- Avoid justice system involvement
Developing a trusting, one-on-one relationship between mentor and mentee is the primary objective.
Mentors support their mentees by identifying and accomplishing goals during a year-long series of weekly meetings.
Schedules are decided by each mentoring match, and goals and activites are youth-driven.
Training and on-going support are provided.
