VOLUNTEER

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:

http://images2.layoutsparks.com/1/103112/single-star-black-design.gif 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs and 27% less likely to begin using alcohol

http://images2.layoutsparks.com/1/103112/single-star-black-design.gif 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?
