CHANGE YOUR LIFE & SOMEONE ELSE’S
When you volunteer just 1.5 hours a week, you become a positive influence. A major US study found that young people with mentors are:
46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs and 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
52% less likely to skip school and more confident in their performance in school work
HERE’S THE BEST PART
Our mentors tell us they not only have a personally rewarding experience as a mentor, but they also develop their own communication & leadership skills that they can take back and use in their work environment and personal lives.
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES? ARE YOU?
Fun and enthusiastic? Open to other cultures and diversity?
