Since 2014, MENTOR has partnered with the NBA family to highlight the power of mentoring and encourage Americans to become mentors using PSAs, grassroots events, ticket donations and online organizing. Through these efforts, the NBA family was able to surpass a five-year-recruitment goal of 25,000 new mentor signups in less than one year. On February 19, 2019, President Obama and Stephen Curry took the stage at MBK Rising in Oakland where Steph announced that the NBA family has more than doubled the original goal – driving more than 50,000 new mentoring sign ups.

None of us would be where we are without our mentors. Mentoring is linked to improved academic, social and economic outcomes for young people and is meaningful, fun, and empowering for mentors.
