BE A MENTOR OR A VOLUNTEER

Mentoring and Volunteering.  We need YOU!

Mentoring works! It doesn’t matter what kind of mentoring program you work for, mentoring works.  Mentors influence young people in three important ways:
1) by enhancing social skills and emotional well-being
2) by improving cognitive skills through dialogue and listening
3) by serving as a role model and advocate.  

Studies shows long talks with trusting and trustworthy adults who know a lot about the world and who like young people affects a young person life in many ways for the rest of their lives.

Mentoring is a proven strategy to build resiliency and life skills.  Studies show when young people are involved in mentoring relationships they are:

  • less likely to begin using drugs or alcohol
  • less likely to engage in violence
  • more likely to attend school
  • more likely to have a positive attitude toward school
  • more likely to be positive toward elders and toward helping others
