Make good on that New Year’s resolution.

January 7, 2011

What would you say if we told you it would take just one hour a week to complete your New Year’s resolution–and that you could change our community forever at the same time?

Here’s how: Become a GoodGuides youth mentor.We’ll give you the training and support to make a huge difference in the life of a local youth.

This month is the 10-year anniversary of National Mentoring Month, and joining us as a mentor is one of the best ways to make a difference in the life of a teenager–and, by extension, in our community as well. We can’t think of a better way to spend an hour.

Mentoring works. According to research by Child Trends, youth who participate in mentoring relationships have better school attendance, are more likely to go on to higher education, and have better attitudes about school. They’re also more likely to avoid drugs and alcohol, and have better relationships with their families.
