In the News
This January, we're celebrating the powerful real life impact mentoring has on youth. A kid who has a quality mentor is more likely to experience increased school attendance and academic achievement, demonstrates responsible decision-making, and develops skills to better navigate relationships at school, socially and at home.
Celebrate these special Engagement Dates during National Mentoring Month!
