Hello there, Math enthusiasts and Mentorship champions!
We have a unique formula to share with you today, and don’t worry – it’s one that won’t require a calculator! Let us present it to you: “Mentorship = Resilience.” Simple, yet powerful, wouldn’t you agree?
Today, in celebration of Big Brothers Big Sisters Month, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our national campaign, “Mentorship Equals” This campaign shines a spotlight on the remarkable science behind how mentoring solidifies resilience in children and youth.
Mentorship has always been at the heart of our efforts. It’s about igniting a spark within young people to unlock their full potential, nurturing meaningful connections, and building relationships that stand the test of time. Now, however, we have something more – we have data and research that substantiates our case!
Studies have shown that mentorship does more than just change lives – it fosters resilience. This incredible capacity to adapt to adversity or bounce back from hardships is built through consistent, healthy relationships with adults – exactly the kind of relationships you’ve helped us nurture.
Our new campaign will delve deeper into how mentoring enhances various life aspects, including social emotional competence, mental health & wellbeing, and educational engagement & employment readiness. If you want to be part of this exciting journey, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and X (Twitter).
What’s more? The ripple effects of mentorship extend far and wide, guiding our youth’s development and laying the groundwork for happier, healthier adults. One of the eye-opening findings we’ll be highlighting is that youth who receive mentoring are 60% more likely to report consistent happiness.
The campaign will also bring to light some inspiring numbers, like mentored youth being 17% more likely to be gainfully employed and 50% more likely to volunteer.
But here’s the clincher – the most vital part of this equation is you. A kid’s world can be variable, but our mentors can be their constant. Without you, this equation simply wouldn’t balance.
So, we invite you to explore our new campaign on our website, dive into the science and math behind mentorship, and help us spread the word with your networks.
