We all have a need for love and to know we are not alone. A mentorship relationship is a powerful experience for everyone involved. We offer the one-on-one connection for students as well as reentry individuals who desire to build this relationship of teaching, accountability and learning. Building this trusted relationship provides that support and encouragement to create and realize long term life goals as well as personal and spiritual development.
Studies have shown that at-risk young adults who had a mentor are more likely
to have aspired to go to college and to be in college now.
A Look at the Numbers
- At-risk young adults with a mentor are more likely to hold a leadership position in a club, sports team, school council, or another group (51 percent versus 22)*
- At-risk young adults with mentors are also more likely to be enrolled in college than those without a mentor (45 percent of all at-risk youth with a mentor are enrolled in some type of postsecondary education as opposed to 29 percent of at-risk youth who are enrolled but never had a mentor)*
