Mentoring provides a consistent supportive adult in the life of the mentee. For young people who lack support, having a mentor means having a trusted adult they can turn to when they need it. 
Research shows that mentored youth are less likely to begin using alcohol or drugs, skip school, or fight. They report feeling better about schoolwork, show gains in performance and get along better with parents and peers.
