Make a lifelong impact

As a mentor you'll work one-on-one with your mentee, helping and encouraging them as they make progress toward their personal/professional goals. You'll have the opportunity to build an empowering, meaningful relationship with your mentee through conversations and shared activities.

Many of our mentees have been impacted by generational poverty, incarceration or unemployment and are either getting started in their careers or seeking to advance.

Reducing recidivism: Mentoring plays an especially powerful role for individuals returning to the community after incarceration. The US Department of Justice reports the national recidivism rate is around 44% in the first year after release. For Connections to Success participants, the rate drops to 14%. For participants with mentors this drops even lower to 8%.
