Community Guide

Provide mentor programs.

Changes in families and communities have limited the amount of contact many youths have with adults who can offer advice and act as role models. To help fill in the gap, interested citizens—from employers to college students to senior citizens—can participate in mentor programs that can provide emotional support and guidance to young people. Mentors can help with schoolwork, job skill development, career planning, parenting, and the many challenges that face young people today.
