SUPPORT THE CHILDREN
OF HENRY COUNTY
Supporting Henry County children with one-to-one mentoring in a safe and uplifting environment.
To see every Henry County student have a mentor!
By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
• Avoidance of risky behaviors
• Educational success
Did you know?
National research has shown that positive relationships between students and their mentors have a direct impact on both their lives forever.
Young adults who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor. (The Mentoring Effect, 2014)
In addition to better school attendance and a better chance of going on to higher education, mentored youth maintain better attitudes toward school. (The Role of Risk, 2013)
