Youth of Promise Take On the New Year
Our Youth of Promise are ready and refreshed for a new year. After celebrating with their families, mentors, and program staff at the annual holiday celebration, students got ready to take on a new school semester. Thanks to Neighbors Empowering Youth, many of our youth got free Dell laptops, breaking down a major barrier between students and completing homework. With the help of amazing volunteer tutors, the new semester is off to a great start.
It’s also a good month because January is National Mentoring Month! Did you know that at-risk youth who have a mentor are 55% more likely to go to college? We’re grateful to all our volunteer mentors you stick up for our youth no matter what.
