We wanted to take this opportunity to thank our mentors for giving up their time this year to mentor a young person. Nearly 1,000 young people are heading into 2020 better equipped to deal with life’s challenges thanks to the hard work and dedication of our mentors.
We know it’s not always easy, but the best things in life rarely are. We are delighted to provide a sneak peak of this year’s evaluation results – the full report will be released next March.
Thanks to our mentors, Raise mentees experienced significant improvement in their resilience, confidence, communication skills, coping skills, relationships with their teachers, help seeking behaviour, belief in their ability to finish school and hope for the future – WOW! What an incredible result!
Another statistic that we are particularly proud of is that 99% of young people enjoyed the program – that’s some serious street cred right there. Our mentees said:
“I got to meet an amazing person who was supportive of me and cared about me – I loved being able to talk to my mentor about anything.”
“I’ve been able to look at things from a more positive angle, and I got to talk about some things that were bothering me with my mentor which really helped to relieve a lot of stress.”
“I loved everything about it.”
Keep your eyes peeled for the full review in our Annual & Evaluation Report next year.
