It costs on average $1,750 to support a single mentoring relationship for one year. Costs include extensive background screenings for mentors, volunteer trainings and orientation, professional case management, and wraparound services so that no relationship, no mentor, no mentee is ever left unsupported.
Every day we are working to create and support meaningful relationships so that young people throughout Rhode Island can be paired with caring and committed mentors. Your support ignites the power and potential within so that they can have the advantage they deserve.
