Have you and your spouse or significant other ever considered jointly mentoring a teenage boy or girl? This writer and his wife did so for over a year - and it was a deeply rewarding experience for all three of us.
Together you can make a big difference in a youth's life, for earning a high school degree is the first step on the path to a successful maturity.
YES!Atlanta mentors and youth are both called Committed Partners. Together, your goal is to enhance the teen's academic success and self-esteem while reducing or eliminating unproductive and self-defeating behavior.
This is a serious year-long commitment for which you will be trained and supported. You promise to meet with your Committed Partner face to face at least once a week for an hour or more, doing what you both enjoy, while communicating at other times by phone or social media.
YES!Atlanta has worked with nearly 1,000 youth since its founding in 1988. Visit our web site for more information.
