A robust network of community members, relatives, neighbors, faith-based connections and family friends can guide a young person’s journey to productive adulthood. Unfortunately, research demonstrates that many young people lack these critical supports, leaving them with inadequate resources to navigate a successful transition to adulthood and putting their path to social and economic security at risk. Connecting young people to a quality mentoring program that matches them with a consistent and caring adult is a way to reverse this trend and drive positive outcomes for our nation’s young people.
