Research has proven what we have intuitively known all along: mentoring works.  According to one study, compared to children without mentors, children with mentors were:

Phillip and Kyler

  • 46% less likely to start using illegal drugs,
  • 27% less likely to start drinking alcohol,
  • 52% less likely to skip a day of school,

According to our own internal research, our MentorKids youth report

  • an increased hope in the future,
  • a more positive outlook on school/education,
  • increased civic engagement through service projects,
  • spiritual growth

Since 1997 we have focused on creating one-to-one mentoring relationships.  In 2010 we introduced a cutting-edge concept we call Promise Neighborhoods which seeks to create systemic change in specific neighborhoods through a variety of mentoring opportunities on three tiers: youth, families, and community.

Make a difference in the life of a child and help transform entire communities by becoming a mentor today!!!

We invite you to read more about our Promise Neighborhoods and to get involved today!!
