When you were young, did you know how to study for a test or make plans for college? Do you remember wanting your first car or looking for a part-time job? Simple things that may seem easy or straightforward to you now may be a complete mystery to a young person.
Mentoring is one of the most significant ways that you can impact a young person’s life. Yet 1 in 3 young people will grow up without having a mentor. These youth, not matched through a formal mentoring program or informally through a family friend or community member, remain disconnected from critical resources that can help them navigate childhood and adolescence.
