Take time to mentor and change a child’s future. There is a powerful mentoring effect demonstrated by research and the experiences of young people who are connected to a mentor. Mentoring is linked to improved academic, social and economic prospects for your people, and that ultimately strengthens our community.
Volunteering as a mentor or becoming an informal mentor to a young person you know is a valuable step in providing young people with the tools to make responsible decisions, stay focused and engaged in school, and reduce or avoid risky behavior like skipping school, drug use and other negative activities.
