Closing the Mentoring Gap

In the recent report, The Mentoring Effect, a nationally-representative survey of young people ages 18-21 found that one in three young people will reach age 19 without the benefit of a mentor. In his opening speech at the 2014 National Mentoring Summit, MENTOR CEO David Shapiro outlines the need to go beyond recruitment to close this mentoring gap by more fully integrating mentoring as a key youth development strategy.
