Spokane’s kids need us to MentorUp! Children in our community continue to face unprecedented challenges and they need our support. Encourage, listen and have some fun while changing the life of a child in our community.
Our goal is to match 500 children in Spokane County with a mentor by the end of 2023. Will you be one of them?
We have 500 kids in Spokane County alone ready and waiting for mentors.
According to youth.gov, mentoring youth promotes increased high school graduation rates, healthier relationships and lifestyle choices, better attitudes about school, higher college enrollment rates and higher educational aspirations, enhanced self-esteem and self-confidence, improved behavior, both at home and at school, stronger relationships with parents, teachers, and peers, improved interpersonal skills, and decreased likelihood of initiating drug and alcohol use (MENTOR, 2009; Cavell, DuBois, Karcher, Keller, & Rhodes, 2009).
You can help our community’s kids develop the mindset and skills they need to thrive!
