1 on1 Mentoring

Mentoring is a one-to-one caring, supportive relationship between a mentor and a protégé that is based on trust. Mentoring increases the likelihood of regular school attendance and academic achievement and decreases the chances of engaging in self-destructive and negative behavior. A trusting relationship with a caring adult provides stability for a young adult and often has profound, life-changing effects.
