Spread our message and help close the mentoring gap
In the United States, there are 9 million young people without a mentor in their lives. What does this mean?
1 out of every 3 young people
have the support of a positive
caring adult in their lives
outside of their family
Ambassadors of Mentoring will help close the gap, by helping communities throughout the state understand the impact mentoring relationships have on young people. You can help us change the statistic.
MENTOR Vermont will provide Ambassadors of Mentoring toolkits with messaging materials for social media, for local community bulletins and local partners.
Ambassadors of Mentoring is made possible by Comcast.
