About

As a YES!Atlanta mentor, your goal, during your one year commitment, is to help your assigned youth do better in high school while reducing self-defeating and unproductive behavior. We call both mentor and youth "Committed Partners", acknowledging the trusting, mutually supportive nature of the relationship.

As a Committed Partner you will meet with your youth face to face once a week for at least an hour, doing things that you both enjoy, and communicate by phone or social media at other times.

This will make a huge difference in the teen’s future - and yours. Most YES!Atlanta Committed Partners (both adult and youth) have said that they have gotten far more out of their participation than they have given. Mentoring can change two lives!
