The consistent, enduring presence of a caring adult in a young person’s life can be the difference between staying in school or dropping out, making healthy decisions or engaging in risky behaviors, and realizing one’s potential or failing to achieve one’s dreams. — The Mentoring Effect
What a beautiful way to love your neighbor! Whether you’re a college student, a retiree, or just someone who wants to invest in the life of a child, you can be a mentor. If you’re a business owner, encourage your employees to take one hour a week to mentor!
