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
do not
have the support of a positive
caring adult in their lives

Ambassadors for 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 for Mentoring toolkits with messaging materials for social media, for local community bulletins and locals.
  • MENTOR Vermont will work with each individual Ambassadors for Mentoring pair to help them determine the best way they can be involved in the mentoring movement.
