New Research: The Power of Relationships
Jul 25, 2018
MENTOR has just released its newest research, The Power of Relationships: How and Why American Adults Step Up to Mentor the Nation's Youth. This study, a follow-up to the 2014 Mentoring Effect report, is the most comprehensive picture of what adults think about mentoring kids who are not their own.
At a time when much of the focus is on what divides us, this study shows that there is something the majority of Americans agree on: mentoring relationships are powerful tools for connection and are critical to our country’s future. Americans are overwhelmingly crossing racial, economic, and other bridges to mentor young people outside their families.
