Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter.

Youth who develop a sustained trust based relationship with a caring non-parental adult demonstrate improvements in social, emotional, and behavioral domains. (Hamre & Pianta, 2001)
