Your gift has the power to reach young people wherever they live, learn, work, and play.
After the COVID-19 Pandemic, young people need support as they reconnect and build social skills, catch up on lost learning, and find spaces to pursue their passions. MENTOR New York's role as an incubator for mentoring and innovation is unique as we work with adults across the state to increase mentoring behaviors and cultures, and enhance the quality and quantity of mentoring relationships available to young people.
BECAUSE OF YOU...
Right now, 1 in 3 young people are growing up without a mentor of any kind. You are key to ensuring that over 500,000 young people in New York will gain access to mentors wherever they live, learn, work, and play.
Because of you, a young person could have a mentor. Donate today!
