Expanding Access to Empowering Youth-Adult Relationships Through Giving
At Mass Mentoring, we believe every young person has the right to access to a empowering relationship with caring adults. Here are some of the ways your support impacts our work to increase access to these relationships. Without your support, our work is impossible. Thank you in advance for empowering youth across MA.
Youth in developmental relationships present better attitudes and behaviors at school, are more likely to attend college and are less likely to skip school than their peers:
"Relationships with adults are very important for young people. I wouldn’t be where I am today without adults who cared about me and wanted to see me succeed."
In addition to serving formal youth mentoring programs, we have expanded our scope to support a wider field of youth-serving organizations to increase opportunities for impactful relationship formation to greater numbers of youth:
Relationships in Action
We partner with businesses, mentoring programs, youth-serving organizations and the community at large to assess the needs of young people and our collective ability to meet those needs.
We provide training, technical assistance and knowledge sharing to build the capacity of youth-serving programs in our network.
We connect non-profit organizations, schools, state agencies and businesses together to create opportunities to help bring more empowering youth-adult relationships where they are needed most.
We advocate at the state and local level to engage public officials on the need for additional resources to make the case for the necessity of developmental relationships for young people and our communities.
