The most important resource you have is time. And, quality time with a caring adult can make a lasting difference in a child’s life. When you become a mentor, you will help a child or a teenager get the support and encouragement they need to succeed in life. By mentoring a young person just one hour each week, you can:

  • Improve academic and study skills
  • Help a child discover new talents and ambitions
  • Provide moral support and confidence
  • Change a child’s life for the better

“We can change the world, one child at a time.” Elizabeth Walker (Mentor)

“I knew I was making a difference for the child I was mentoring, but it also made me feel like I was really giving something back. I loved that feeling.” Steve Hamilton (Mentor)

96% of existing mentors would recommend mentoring to others. – 2005 Mentoring in America
