Today on Your Call: What is the value of youth mentoring programs?

Feb 7, 2013

  On today's Your Call we’ll talk to people about their experiences with youth mentorship programs.  Mentors can offer anything from academic encouragement to help dealing with life’s challenges.  And these relationships have the powerful ability to help people cross social boundaries. If you’ve been a mentor or a mentee, how did it change you?  Join us at 10am Pacific Time or post a comment here.  What mentoring programs would you recommend to others?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.

Guests:

Theresa Jahangir, a mentor for a 5th grade student with Mentoring for Success

Becky Reed, a mentor for a high school senior through the program, 10,000 Degrees

Blanca, a senior in high school and Becky Reed’s mentee through the 10,000 degrees program
