In order to close the mentoring gap and ensure all youth have the positive relationships that they deserve, it is critical that we advocate for policies in Congress that will increase the quality and quantity of mentoring programs. For Advocacy August, you can make a difference right now by taking just two minutes to contact your Member of Congress.
Not sure how? Check out this video that will take you through the process, step-by-step. It really does take just two minutes! Then, share this opportunity to advocate on social media.
One last thing: is there a Mayor in your city or town doing great work to support local mentoring programs? Nominate them to be a Mayor for Mentoring by filling out the form linked on this page.
Your voice matters and can help make a difference in building support for funding and legislation to support our youth across the country. Join us!
