Why are caring adults so important?
"Young people with formal and informal mentors in their lives were far more likely to stay in school, enroll in college, become active in sports, become leaders and generally pursue higher education goals" than those who do not have quality relationships with adults (The Mentoring Effect, The National Mentoring Partnership, 2014). The sad fact is, nationally, 40% of young children and 55% of teens do not have caring adults in their homes, schools, and communities. Research shows that even one caring adult can make a major difference in the life of a child. Caring adults can provide encouragement, support, and teach valuable lessons, but most importantly, they can be role models.
