Mentoring is an increasingly popular way of providing guidance and support to young people in need. Recent years have seen youth mentoring expand from a relatively small youth intervention (usually for youth from single-parent homes) to a cornerstone youth service that is being implemented in schools, community centers, faith institutions, school-to-work programs, and a wide variety of other youth-serving institutions
Statistics prove mentoring helps because it ensures today’s youth that there is someone who cares about them and is available to help them deal with day-to-day challenges. The vast majority of the targeted youth are from single-family homes with the mothers being the head of the household. They are daily exposed to crime and self-destructive activities during the unattended hours. The goal of The Balanced Living Mentorship Program is to increase their awareness of identity and to enhance their life through positive mentorship moreover, decreasing the social violence, building respect for others, and understanding the importance of education.
Balanced Living Mentorship Program aims to reduce the frequency and severity of delinquent behavior in youth participants through one-on-one community based youth mentoring, tutoring, and sports camps.
To reach this goal, mentors and mentees will focus on developing a positive relationship. Mentors will provide youth with a consistent, caring adult for support and assistance. Because of the variance of need (anger management skills, problem solving, decision making, etc.) mentees and mentors will be matched accordingly.
