With the help of a network of donors, partners, family members, and advocates, Champions of Youth carefully matches at-risk youths with caring, adult role models (Champions). These volunteers are 18 years or older and have gone through extensive background screening.
Research has shown that children enrolled in one-on-one youth mentoring programs are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol.
For only a few hours (minimum) a month, you can positively impact a youth’s life and help teach them how to make good choices while growing up… all in only a few hours every 30 days!
Our traditional community-based mentoring program boasts a 100% graduation rate from 2008-present. Sometimes just having someone show interest in you is enough. We see positive changes almost immediately.
