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.
