BECOME A MENTOR THIS BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON
As school begins, mentoring programs report that September is the month of most critical need to recruit new mentors and reduce wait lists. So throughout September, we’ll show how mentoring can positively impact academic outcomes and support youth in school. Be sure to check out how NBA stars like Blake Griffin and Isaiah Thomas have been inspired to join the mentoring movement. We hope that this back to school season, you’ll step up to become a mentor for one of the 9 million youth growing up without that support.
