ON THIS WEEKS SHOW:
The Youth Mentoring Connection (YMC) mission statemtn is "to awaken at-risk youth to their power, unique gifts and purpose by matching them with caring adult mentors and placing that 'match' within a structured group dynamic that provides the resources youth need to reach productive, conscious adulthood. We further seek to awaken society to the needs, promise and value of this overlooked population."
January is National Mentoring Month!
YMC works with matching youth with adult mentors who can provide stability and support systems to help them have a healthy lifestyle and succeed in school, work environments, and personally. YMC’s proven model of group and 1:1 mentoring, extensive staff monitoring, life skills workshops, and parental involvement produces positive program outcomes such as improvement in school grades, problem solving and communication skills, self-esteem, and staying away from drugs, violence, and gangs. 95% of YMC’s mentees graduate from high school.
