Do you know a youth in your school, community, or even your family who would benefit from having a mentor with Hunting For Purpose
? Mentoring is one of the most effective ways to redirect the course of at-risk youth!
Did you know?
- Youth are five times more likely to graduate if they have a meaningful relationship with an adult. (Michigan Dropout Prevention Summit 2008)
- Without effective intervention as many as 70% of children with incarcerated parents/caregivers will become involved with the criminal justice system (United States Senate Report)
- Youth who spend time with an adult mentor regularly for at least one year are: 46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs, 27% less likely to start drinking, 52% less likely than their peers to skip a day of school, 37% less likely to skip a class and more trusting of their parents or guardian. (Making a Difference: An Impact Study of Big Brothers Big Sisters by Public/Private Ventures 1995)
