Almost everyone has benefited from adults outside the family taking an interest and helping us along the way. Mentoring Plus is here to make sure every young person can benefit from those connections, because everyone deserves the right to fulfill their potential.

Adult mentors and young people took time out of our recent Celebration event to talk about what mentoring means to them.
