Mentors are so important in the lives of our youth. When young people see examples of what they can become, they are more likely to take school seriously, to excel in school academically and to graduate from elementary and high school with college aspirations. A good mentor can turn a high school dropout into an honor student. A mentor can show a student a different path in life. Our mentoring programs focus on exposing our youth to positive role models, instilling values of integrity and service, and building positive young people who will be successful in school and in life.
