This week, we launched our first mentoring session here in Elbert County, GA. Together with a local organization called Elbert County Community Friends who has been working in the community for decades.
Our team held two sessions. One at the Blackwell Gym and the Cultural center where over 50 youth showed up to learn more about the mentoring program in the community.
1 in 3 young people will grow up without a mentor. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations.
If our youth have access to mentoring, it will have a significant positive effect in their lives, their community, and generations to come. That’s why ARISE Project For Humanity is now expanding our mentoring program in the U.S to reach more communities. Our goal with this ongoing youth development movement is to inspire young people to change their mindset, create their life, and impact their community through mentoring.
The mission of Arise is deeply rooted in a set core values, principles and goals. These core values are embraced by our mentors through a pedagogical key of mentoring which is the foundation of Arise’s unique purpose, goal, and vision.
We’re grateful for local organizations and leaders who have been supporting our work and have made these connections happen. We’re looking forward to working with them to help implement our mentoring program in more communities across Georgia.
Thanks to you, our youth have reason to feel hopeful for their future.
