January is National Mentoring Month


January is National Mentoring Month so we want to take time to remind you of the importance of the mentor/mentee relationship:

  • 14% of Guilford County's high school students do not graduate on time

  • 32% of NC high school students have drunk alcohol in the past 30 days

  • For every 1000 girls in Guilford County between ages 15-19, 30 are getting pregnant.

The most effective intervention for at-risk youth is to provide them with a caring, adult mentor. Young people who are mentored are more likely to:

  • Stay in school and graduate

  • Avoid substance abuse

  • Enroll in college Become community leaders

Thank you for your continued support of SHIELD!
