In Canada, hundreds of thousands of children grow up facing hardships like poverty, violence, family instability, and identity-based discrimination. These hardships can negatively affect a child’s physical and mental health.
With mentoring, kids can overcome these obstacles. According to Harvard researchers, every child who does well has had at least one stable relationship with a supportive adult. In other words, mentoring is a critical factor in young people achieving more - doing better in school, pursuing fulfilling careers, and making healthier life choices - no matter what adversities they face.
Your support provides 41,800 children and youth with the confidence to achieve more, through high-quality one-on-one mentoring and group mentoring programs. Thank you for believing in the potential of Canadian youth.
