New Research Highlights Positive Impacts of Mentoring

By EW!DC / Published: 12/02/2011

According to research released in November 2011 from MENTOR The National Mentoring Partnership, students in a mentoring relationship will experience the following positive benefits:


1) Mentored youth have better attendance; a better chance of going on to higher education; and better attitudes toward school

2) Mentoring appears to help prevent substance abuse and reduce some negative youth behaviors

3) Taking part in mentoring promotes positive social attitudes and relationships. Mentored youth tend to trust their parents more and communicate better with them.
