We have a mentoring gap in the U.S.
One in three young people are growing up without a mentor outside their family. Yet most people agree that mentoring relationships are powerful tools for connection and support, particularly for first generation students who can benefit from guidance through the complicated college and career exploration process. It’s even good for business! One study found when employers support youth mentoring, 73% of employees report strong career satisfaction.
January is National Mentoring Month and Kathy McDonald, FCAN’s Assistant Director for Network Partnerships is pleased to host Marci Poston, Director of Programmatic and Professional Development Services at Take Stock in Children (TSIC).
