Big Impact:

For Mentees: Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity.


For VOICE Mentors: Mentoring provides an empowering opportunity to give back to the community, build leadership and communication skills, and connect with like-minded people who are invested in supporting youth.
