Potential Is Equally Distributed. Opportunity Is Not.
MENTOR NY works to drive equity and close the mentoring gap by fostering quality mentoring relationships wherever young people live, learn, work, and play.
The Mentoring Gap
One in three young people in New York will grow up without a mentor.
You Can Make a Difference
At MENTOR New York, we believe in creating a state where young people have a caring adult mentor or mentor-like figure who really sees them.
Who listens. Who validates. Who helps them tap into their greatest potential.
Over 500,000 young people in New York need or want a mentor. Help us close that gap — join the mentoring movement today.
