Why It's Important
Youth mentoring helps young people succeed, establishing supportive and beneficial relationships between youth and mentors. These programs promote positive individual development, improved self-esteem, better social skills, and knowledge of career opportunities. Youth involved in mentoring programs are also less likely to drop out of school or use substances, and are more likely to pursue higher education.
