Mentors volunteer one hour a week for a year, to a child (ages 6-18) and make a positive difference in the life of a youth. Mentors must complete an application, pass a background check, and attend a one-time orientation training. Students with mentors have been shown to improve relationships with family, friends, and authority; improve school attendance and grades; and are more likely to be promoted to the next grade level in school.l.
