Interested in finding a mentor for someone you care about?
A Mentor can be a powerful ally in the life of a child. A mentor is a caring, consistent and committed friend.
Some children find natural mentors and experience informal mentoring in their life through relationships with family members, friends of the family, neighbors, friend’s parents, an older sibling, a sport or hobby etc.
Many of our youth do not find these types of enriching and guiding relationships on their own for any of several reasons such as environment, circumstance, available resources or simply a more introverted character.
MPLI is committed to creating and supporting effective formal mentoring programs so that every child has the opportunity to connect with a mentor. We work with over 200 mentoring programs across Long Island.
The 5 borough area is served by our sister agency, the Mentoring Partnership of NY (www.mentoring.org/newyork/).
