About

Why Mentor?

Every young person has potential...As a mentor you can help unleash it


There are some serious problems attacking our children. They are:

  • Drugs in their neighborhoods
  • Crime and violence in juvenile gangs
  • Teen Pregnancy launching our teens, unprepared, into adulthood
  • Education failure with school dropouts creating an ignorant population


Fifteen Million kids wake up every morning without a caring adult in their lives.

What Can You Do?

Of the 15 million kids who suffer from these severe problems, some survive to become responsible and productive citizens. Research and experience shows they all had someone in their lives consistently that cared enough to encourage and inspire them.

Can you remember a person in your life who was there for you; maybe a neighbor, aunt, or uncle? You may not have used the term, but he or she was your mentor. That's what these kids are missing.
