No young person who needs or wants a mentor should have to grow up without one. Your gift can ensure that NY's youth have someone to turn to.
MENTOR New York (MNY) is the champion for the youth mentoring movement in NY State.
Research shows that young people who have a mentor are much more likely to participate in after-school activities, be leaders in clubs and teams, volunteer and go on to college. But one out of every three young people will grow up without a mentor.
MNY is committed to closing the mentoring gap for youth who don't yet have access to a mentor by providing a range of resources and tools to help expand the number of matches supported through quality mentoring programs in communities across the NY.
Make a Difference!
Please see below for a video sharing how MENTOR New York was a critical part of making mentoring happen for the mentoring stories of 5th grad students Thomas, Liam and Neveah.
Thomas, Liam and Neveah benefited from mentoring in their school. So can other youth.

Your investment in MENTOR will have a lasting impact on more than just one young person, it will have a ripple effect that reaches hundreds of thousands of kids and their mentors each year. Thank you, in advance, for giving the gift of mentoring - because no young person should have to walk the road alone.
