A study conducted by the California Mentor Foundation yielded the following statistic, showing the positive impact of mentoring among youth facing major social ills:
98% -Stay in school
98%- Do not become teen parents
85% -Do not use drugs
98% -Avoid gang participation
In the words of the National CARES Mentoring Movement, “mentoring is a low-cost, high yield solution to a growing crisis.”
There is enormous amount of pressures just being a teenager. As the teens transition from childhood to young adulthood, they face challenges on a daily basis from – body change, peer pressure, social media and trying to fit in. Just having someone to help teens understand these changes and how to deal with the challenges can make a big difference in ones world.
Mentoring and Coaching is a huge component of our program. We partnered with local business owners, counselors and community leaders to help mentor and coach our youth.
