Here are some stats on mentoring that are very interesting. An excerpt from page xiii of the Mentoring To-Go Text.

MENTORING

TO-GO!

 

MENTORING STATICTICS

PEOPLE INVOLVED IN MENTORING PROGRAMS ARE:

MORE LIKELY TO…

  • Stay in school
  • Improve their grades
  • Enroll in college

A 1988 Proctor and Gamble study of mentoring programs in Cincinnati showed while about 25% of the student population went on to college over 85% of mentored students did. That’s nearly a 60% improvement. The study also found that mentored students were more likely to stay in school and improved their grades.

  • Be active in their communities
  • Be hopeful about their futures

From 1989 to 1991, the Quantum Opportunities Program evaluating the results of mentoring disadvantage teens. Those students who were mentored were significantly more likely to graduate from high school, and to become involved in their communities. In addition, the mentored teens had a much more optimistic view of their futures compared to those who were not involved in a mentoring program.

MENTORED STUDENTS ARE LESS LIKELY TO…

  • Begin using illegal drugs
  • Begin using alcohol
  • Skip school
  • Get arrested

A 1995 study involving Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) found that youth who participated in the program were 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs, 27% less likely to start drinking, 52% less likely to skip school and 33% less likely to hit someone.

  • Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine (April 2000) studied adolescents receiving medical care by physicians in a suburban community-based teaching hospital. The young people, who had adult mentors, were less likely than their peers to ever carry weapons, use illegal drugs in the past 30 days, smoke more than five cigarettes a day, or have sex with more than one partner in the past six months.

Very instructive article that says a lot of applied truths in it. Mentoring is the same as discipleship, as Christ set the example. It is based and established on a bond of true friendship and "agape" love. In our Christian churches we have cell groups and "one-to-one" discipleship programs wherein the novice or new Christian gets the much needed guidance, teaching, prayer and support he needs to grow as a believer/citizen in whatever area of life he belongs. The availability of the mentor is 24/7 and the disciple learns to be responsible and accountable to his mentor/discipler. Of course, there always exists the freedom of will, but since the mentorship is based on genuine ties of friendship, there is always the element of trust. Your article is speaks of such, the same applied to boys scouts and girl scouts groups.

This is an excellent article with interesting facts and statistics. When I taught school, the one thing I learned about young people is they all are hungry for someone to respect and appreciate them. It is the best way in the world to shape and mold young children into becoming the best they can be. Good write, John Michael.
