From 2006 to 2012, youth mentoring in Massachusetts has experienced an almost 80% increase in youth served.
The estimated cost of one high school dropout is 467,231 to the state. Mentoring encourages a young person to stay in school and be prepared to learn. We call this The Mentor Effect. And it’s working in our community.
Our 2012-13 Corps served more than 40,300 hours in more than 22 host sites, and recruited 233 new mentors!
Mass Mentoring Partnership (MMP) is fueling the movement to expand empowering youth-adult relationships to meet the needs of communities across Massachusetts. We work with mentoring programs and youth development organizations to assess programmatic needs and organizational capacity to provide customized strategies that strengthen youth, families, and communities.
