MENTOR works to support young people by providing a public voice, driving investment of time and money in high-impact mentoring and promoting quality mentoring through the development and delivery of standards, cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art tools. We carry out this work in collaboration with our network of Mentoring Partnerships and more than 5,000 mentoring programs and volunteer centers throughout the country, serving more than three million children in all 50 states.

We are deeply grateful to our sponsors and supporters in the private, public and nonprofit sectors who have worked with us to combine resources, talents and influence toward ensuring that our youngest citizens have the support they need through mentoring relationships to succeed at home, school and, ultimately, in the workforce and in life.
