“Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter.

Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity. Yet one in three young people will group up without this critical asset"(MENTOR, 2016).
