Success Journey EDU Mentoring

THE NEED:  Students entering high school are at a crucial turning point in their lives. During this time they may turn away from a serious commitment in school and instead turn to a variety of risky behaviors that can decrease their chances of being a productive adult citizen. However, this is also the age when preventative intervention can be effective and students are capable of imagining a positive future and taking the necessary steps to achieve their goals.

OUR VISION:  To reach out to these students by providing caring adult mentors, safe gathering places, a caring community and challenging experiences to assist them in reaching their full potential.

THE VEHICLE:  Mentoring is one of the most effective ways to help a young person. Research shows that youth who meet regularly with their a mentor are less likely to begin using alcohol and drugs or turn to violence, are more likely to do better in school and have better relationships with family and peers.
