Our mentoring program helps to empower children and youth to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. The mentoring program uses ABH certified support staff to offer guidance and friendship to a young person. Our mentors help our students develop and reach positive academic and personal goals. They take the lead in supporting a young person through an ongoing, one-to-one relationship and serve as a positive role model and friend. The mentoring program helps the student build self-esteem and motivation, helps the student set goals and work toward accomplishing them, and allows the mentor and student to have fun together.
A Mentor is a caring, responsible, adult who serves as a trusted friend and guide to a student. S/he helps to ensure that the student develops important academic and life skills, is exposed to new opportunities and a wide array of resources, makes positive life choices, stays in school, and graduates with a plan for pursuing post-secondary education.
