Mentoring can help youth as they go through challenging life transitions, including dealing with stressful changes at home or transitioning to adulthood. Close, healthy, supportive relationships between mentors and mentees that last for a significant portion of time (i.e., more than one year) are central to success.
When youth are able to share regular positive interactions with trusted adults, there is a significant decrease in the likelihood of drug and/or alcohol abuse, crime and under age pregnancy. Children who are fortunate to have the guidance of a positive role model experience improved academic performance, higher self confidence and better decision making abilities. They are also more likely to attend and complete a college degree program.
The benefits of Youth Mentor programs offer, not only potential educational and behavioral benefits but also socio-emotional development and improvements in the area of perception.
We invite your youth to engage in positive and supportive mentor relationships, and fun & stimulating activities, while building trust and an affinity for constructive relationships. Contact us for more info.
