THE CONFIDENCE TO ACHIEVE MORE
All young people realize their full potential
Enable life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people
We rely on support from hundreds of volunteers that enable life-changing mentorship for young people in Niagara.
Many children and youth in Niagara are not reaching their full potential.
Facing prolonged adversity creates toxic stress in the brain that can negatively impact development.
With the support of a mentor, these risks can be reduced or even avoided, and youth can reach their full potential.
