When you mentor a child, you give them confidence,
inspire positive choices and create hope for a better future.
And all it takes is a little of your time.
Mentoring is linked to improved academic, social and economic prospects for your people,
and that ultimately strengthens our community.
Research has shown that when matched through a quality mentoring program, mentors can
play a powerful role in providing young people with the tools to make responsible decisions, stay
focused and engaged in school, and reduce or avoid risky behavior like skipping school, drug
use and other negative activities.

Serving the Community
Since 1975.

• 81% more likely to report participating regularly in sports or extracurricular activities.
• 78% more likely to volunteer regularly in their communities.
• More than twice as likely to say they held a leadership position in a club or sports team.
This same report found that one in three young people in our country will grow up without a
mentor. Today, in our community there are 6 kids – most of them male - who could benefit from
having a mentor.

Mentors are all around us!

Mentors come from all walks of life. They can be
young adults or retired professionals. What they have
in common is a genuine desire to positively influence
young people. Simply put, - mentors are adults who
offer support, friend ship and a positive example to
young people.

Inspire their lives and yours!

Young people want and need to spend time with positive, successful adult role models. They
thrive on consistent encouragement and guidance from a caring adult and are better equipped
to succeed if they have guidance in setting and achieving their goals. Students report greater
engagement at school when mentors focus on strengths. Peer and parent relationships improve
as well as resiliency to the pressures of drug and alcohol abuse. Not only does TeamMates
increase students’ grades, attendance, and behavior, but most importantly their sense of hope.

How does it work?
