“By spending even an hour each week with a student, a mentor becomes a “consistent” role model, nurturer and care giver. Mentors teach the student through their own life experience. Mentors inform the student about life’s truths and what it means to succeed in the real world. Mentors confirm the importance of education the listen to the student in healthy ways that make them accountable.”
“Mentoring at risk youth is important and has proven results in increased school attendance, attitude and performance; improved family and peer relationships; reduction of negative behaviors; reduces participation in drug/alcohol or engaging in physical abuse; and positive developments in cognitive and social areas.”
“A mentor could very well be the first person in a child’s life who has given them their undivided time and interest for an entire hour.”
