Make a Difference
Everyone remembers what it’s like to be a teenager. The future is unknown – sometimes exciting, sometimes frightening. You’re trying to find yourself while trying to fit in. You’re expected to grow up and yet rarely taken seriously. It’s overwhelming.
Mentoring helps combat the vulnerability and marginalization teenagers face. What makes our programs unique is that they offer personal interaction. In individual mentoring, the focus is on developing a bond between an adult and a young person. The program has a greater long-term impact on both the mentee and mentor as well as society as a whole. A recent study by Boston Consulting Group found that our mentoring programs have a high social return on investment. In fact, our impact is up to 14 times the investment. This results in reductions in costs for society including drug and alcohol abuse, unemployment, and psychological illness. We have also found that our programs reduce the likelihood of risky behavior. Our career programs also support young people by helping them realize their full potential and look to the future with confidence.
There's something very powerful about knowing you've made a positive difference in someone else's life.Karin Jordås, Secretary General, Mentor International
