1.2 million students drop out of high school every year, many falling into a cycle of poverty, unemployment and violence.
We provide the resources, life skills, and mentors to provide opportunities to bridge the gap in fulfillment of their highest potential.
Young adults who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor. (The Mentoring Effect, 2014)
In addition to better school attendance and a better chance of going on to higher education, mentored youth maintain better attitudes toward school. (The Role of Risk, 2013)
