FREE mentoring for adopted students!
Did you know 50% of kids grades 9th-12th in the state of Michigan are latch key kids? This means that they’re unsupervised after school until their parent or guardian gets home after work, which increases the chance for the unsupervised youths engaging in high-risk behaviors such as joining gangs or drinking and experimenting in illicit substances with peers.
Study shows young people that are at risk of engaging in high-risk behaviors but had a mentor are:
- 55% more likely to enroll in college
- 78% more likely to volunteer regularly and give back to their communities.
- 90% are interested in becoming a mentor for the next generation
- 130% more likely to hold leadership positions in their communities.
- 46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs
- 27% less likely to start drinking
The Ally Learning Mentoring Program is available for students who are adopted from the Michigan Foster Care System.Our mentors are carefully screened and trained to meet the needs of the mentees.
We match our mentees with a specific mentor based on their personality compatibilities, interests, and residential distance.
