Unleash the power of mentoring in you!
Mentoring is a powerful way of lending support to a young person. Mentors teach skills, listen to a young person’s perspective, and help them create a sense of belonging. Spending time with a young person may seem simple, but science tells us that healthy interactions with supportive adults can boost children’s brain development, mental health, and well-being.
Among youth who are mentored:
- 80% pursue healthy lifestyles
- 92% feel conﬁdent
- 96% say they are happy
- 63% complete post-secondary education
