In 2014, MENTOR released a report titled The Mentoring Effect which gave voice to young people’s insights about the role mentoring plays in their lives. The report confirmed that mentoring has a significant impact that results in positive outcomes for young people involved. Mentoring connects them to networks of support and resources that allow them to reach for social and economic opportunity and succeed.
Unfortunately, one in three young people will grow up without a mentor. To close this gap, it will take everyone from parents, students and teachers to counselors, coaches and family friends – anyone who has a touch point in a young person’s life.
Girls Like Us Evolving, Inc. recognizes that community engagement is an undeniably critical part of ensuring that mentoring isn’t left to chance. Our organization participates in local school drives and community events. We are always looking to partner with businesses and other organizations to uplift our community. For partnerships, please contact email@example.com to engage with our Outreach Coordinator.
