9/07 @ 10:00 am - Mentee's Monthly Workshop
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.
Why? Because Mentoring Works!!!
