Mentoring is a Proven Strategy


Less likely to Engage in Risky Behavior

Youth who meet regularly with their mentors are 46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs and 27% less likely to start drinking.   

Improved Interpersonal Skills

Youth with mentors are more likely to develop positive relationships with peers and adults.

Higher Graduation Expectation Rate

Students who meet regularly with their mentors are 52% less likely than their peers to skip a day of school and 37% less likely to skip a class. Youth with mentors are less likely to drop out of school.

Increase of Self-Confidence

Youth with a mentor have a better sense of self-worth, pride and a significant increase of self-esteem. As a result, youth are able to make better informed decisions and create a brighter future for themselves.

Modification of Behavior

Studies show that behavior and attitudes improve when a youth has a mentor.  Mentoring reduces “depression symptoms” and increases “social acceptance, academic attitudes and grades.”
