Youth Mentorship

Youth Mentorship
Youth mentorship provides a meaningful connection between an individual and a mentor that influences their lives at home, school, work, and community. Research has indicated that mentoring significantly reduces depressive symptoms and provides a positive social attitude in relationships (The Role of Risk, 2013). Data has revealed that youth involved in the court system and having a mentor are 70% more likely not to be re-offenders. The report shows that mentors who provide guidance, skills, and accountability positively influence how youth act and respond to others.

Being a mentor positively impacts academics and social and economic prospects because it provides accountability and responsibility and lays a blueprint for future planning. Statistics have shown that youth that meets regularly with mentors are 52% less likely than peers to skip a day in school and 37% less likely to miss a class. Youth who face opportunity gaps but have a mentor are 55% more likely to enroll in college and 46% less likely to start using illegal drugs. Hope For The Future provides the following but is not limited to:
