Mentoring is one of the most effective ways to help young people overcome challenges and fulfill their potentials. Many of the difficult issues facing kids today - illiteracy, substance abuse, crime - stem from the fact that many young people do not have strong, caring adult role models. Mentors can fill that role, providing support and encouragement to a young person. To learn more about mentoring, use the resources below.
