Be a mentor

National studies have found that mentoring makes a real difference for young people.

Ford Foundation study showed that students who had a mentor were more likely
to graduate from high school, enroll in college,
and become involved in community service.

​Center for Intergenerational Learning
(Temple University) study showed that students in a mentoring program
​will have better school attendance and improved relationships with adults and peers, and were less inclined to use drugs.
