Spotlight on School Mentoring Program
The purpose of this item is to bring awareness to the positive impact Mentors can make in the life of a young person.
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 connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Yet one in three young people will grow up without this critical asset. By being a consistent adult presence in a young person's life, mentors can offer advice, share life experiences, and help a young person navigate changes.
