About

By dedicating a year of mentoring, you can change the course of a child’s life who is facing significant challenges in their personal, social, and academic lives. We depend on the support of compassionate, caring adults to continue providing meaningful and effective mentoring services to youth facing challenges. The number of youth in need of extra support is growing, and we consistently have youth waiting for mentors.

Mentoring is a well-documented and effective strategy in positive youth development and our program implementation is dictated by best practices, according to national research. Our specific objectives of these long-term, mentoring relationships is to:

  • Promote positive youth development
  • Increase self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Prevent juvenile delinquency and drug use
  • Provide support for abuse/neglect victims
  • Enhance academic achievement
As a Senior Partner, I’ve gained a greater sense of responsibility and understanding of how my actions can change the youth I am involved with. I gained a friend who taught me more that I could ever teach myself. The better question is: what did I not gain?" - Senior Partner
