Our Children have so much to offer to the world- we believe in the power that they hold. I know that they will mold future generations to come. At the IBELIEVENU FOUNDATION, we are here to give the support they need to shape the leaders of the future. The Youth Awareness( Mentoring) Program, includes a number of programs and leadership initiatives that help nurture our youth and help develop the skills they will carry throughout their lives. Donate today, and see how you can help make an impact. An analysis found that youth in mentoring relationships present with better attitudes and behaviors at school, fewer instances of drug and alcohol use, improved relationships with their parents, and fewer absences from school than their counterparts who were not mentored. A 2011 meta-analysis of 73 mentoring program evaluations conducted between 1999 and 2010 found a host of positive outcomes for mentored youth, including benefits with regard to youth’s attitudes, motivation, social/relational skills, academic outcomes, and physical health (DuBois, et al., 2011). The results of this analysis indicated that across these domains, mentoring both prevents negative outcomes and promotes positive ones. /donate
