Already, 10% to 20% of children and adolescents in the world suffer from mental health problems and ill-being. Rates of depression among American adolescents increased from almost 9% to just over 11% between 2005 and 2014 while 19% of students report being bullied. And in 2017, 17% of children lived with a single parent.
All of these challenges have been exacerbated by the loss of structure from teachers and caregivers and socialization with peers during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Our child mentoring services connect children with a young adult mentor to give them an opportunity to share about the challenges they face, continue to socialize, communicate, and learn as they rebound and reintegrate from the pandemic.
Mentoring sessions can either be held virtually or in-person depending on the preferences of each family. Fill out the contact form right and one of our coaches will be in touch with you in 1-2 business days!
