Spending one hour each week – whether it’s helping with homework, playing games or just hanging out – means a young person has someone to turn to in moments big and small.
The report found that young people who were at risk for not completing high school but who had a mentor reported higher educational aspirations and matriculation into post-secondary education, as well as greater engagement in positive activities.
• 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor.
• 81% more likely to report participating regularly in sports or extracurricular activities.
• More than twice as likely to say they held a leadership position in a club or sports team.
• 78% more likely to volunteer regularly in their communities.
• Nearly nine in ten respondents who had a mentor said they are now interested in becoming a mentor.
Mentoring to educate, empower and promote positive and healthy life choices for girls 9-18.
OUR VISION: OUR HOPE
Girls with Goals Alliance envisions a community in which every youth experiences nurturing one-to-one relationships and community support, which in turn allows each of them to develop their full potential, capable of making informed, responsible decisions before using illegal drugs, alcohol, violence, skipping school, staying in school, graduating on time.
