Young people with mentors are better equipped to meet and overcome personal, academic and professional challenges.

Older mentors help younger people realize their potential, through caring relationships that nurture success.

Yet one in three young people will grow up without a mentor in their lives.

Featured Mentoring Organizations

Abundant scholarship and anecdotal experience attest to the lasting power of mentors — and the benefits that flow both ways in the mentoring relationship.

Caring adults over 50+ bring unique gifts — an appetite to serve, and the hard-wired aptitude to connect with younger generations — that can profoundly shape young lives, and in the process, enrich mentors' lives, as well.

Get involved and support young people your own way.
