The Importance of Mentorship

"Quality program practices have been codified through The Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring™, and our national network of locally-based Mentoring Partnerships serves a unique role as a clearinghouse for resources to thousands of program providers across the country informed by a growing body of research."

-Willem Kooyker Board Chair, MENTOR and David Shapiro, President and CEO, MENTOR

Ultimately, AEYL mission is to advance the dedicated efforts of community agencies and the many individual leaders who step up as mentors to deliver on the promise of mentoring- which is a GREAT NEED!

The research base is STRONG, the NEED is CLEAR, and AEYL IS READY. We know now, more than ever, that we can meet many needs of young people through the support of caring adults and continued collaborative efforts of schools, businesses, community organizations, government, philanthropy, and young people themselves.
