Children who have a mentor are:
•46% less likely to begin using drugs
•27% less likely to use alcohol
•53% less likely to skip school
•33% less likely to engage in violence
Mentors meet once a week, for one hour with their Mentee at school. The program includes structured one-on-one activities, group building activities, and free time to sit and talk or collaborate on a project. Something as simple as a positive conversation can make a difference in the life of a student. Mentors participate in our programs from all walks of life and backgrounds and come with a sincere desire to make a positive impact on the life of a child.
