Change a Life!
Studies show that Youth, Adults, Incarcerated individuals and former incarcerated individuals who have a mentor are far more likely to re-gain their self-worth, strengthen their relationships with others and thrive more positively in society. Youth with mentors are far more likely to stay in school and attend college, form positive social attitudes and relationships, and are better equipped to deal with challenging life transitions. Adults, those in prison or those formerly incarcerated are better equipped to transition back into society and connect to many support services if they have a mentor. NOTHING will have more impact in their lives than positive relationships.
