Project Y.E.S Mentors:
Saving lives one hour at a time
In today's complicated social climate, it's risky to allow a child to harbor unresolved resentment
or issues. Therefore it's vital that every teen has someone he or she can speak with. For teens with
difficulty approaching friends, parents or teachers--an objective, unattached person who can smooth their
transition to adulthood.
"Mentors who do not attempt to change their mentee, but instead focus of building a trusting relationship by letting the youth drive the pace and activities, seemed to [build relationships that were] longer lasting and more successful."
Teachers College, Columbia University, Center for Young Children and Families (New York, NY), September 1996-August 1998
