Male Mentors Needed for Bay Area Youth!
Every young person has potential...As a mentor you can help unleash it! Why Mentor? Assist youth in making positive choices, Explore careers and higher education, Help improve youth's grades, Assist youth's in setting goals for the future, See new things and places, and have fun! Be a positive role model and friend Mentoring boys and girls is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community There are some serious problems attacking our children... Drugs in their neighborhoods Crime and violence in juvenile gangs Education failure with school dropouts creating an ignorant population Fifteen Million kids wake up every morning without a caring adult in their lives. What Can You Do? Of the 15 million kids who suffer from these severe problems, some survive to become responsible and productive citizens. Research and experience shows they all had someone in their lives consistently that cared enough to encourage and inspire them. Can you remember a person in your life who was there for you; maybe a neighbor, aunt, or uncle? You may not have used the term, but he or she was your mentor. That's what these kids are missing. How does it work? Mentors spend minimum of 8 hours per month together Focus on schoolwork Go to movies Sporting events or museums Simply talk and be a trusted friend For more volunteer information copy and paste the link below into browser! www.beamentor.org/apply Be A Mentor, Inc. has been positively interacting with at-risk and academically low performing youth since its founding in 1992 and continues to connect youth with dedicated volunteer adults throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
