Research shows that mentors play a powerful role in providing young people with the tools to attend and engage in school, to reduce or avoid risky behaviors like drug use and to achieve success in life. These young people are also:
  • 55% more likely to be enrolled in college

  • 81% more likely to report participating regularly in sports or extracurricular activities

  • 78% more likely to volunteer regularly in their communities

  • 130% more likely to say they held a leadership position in a club or sports team

  • 90% more likely to say they are now interested in becoming mentors

As the 2021 year begins, take the time to contact that special mentor in your life and say “Thank you for mentoring me!

Thank you to all those who have mentored for BISD in years past, present and future.
