Mentoring: A Successful and Cost-Effective Intervention
Did you know…
• 98% of all youth mentored complete their high school education raising their employability, income, and self-worth
• A high school dropout earns .37 cents for every dollar earned by an individual with at least a high school degree
• The combined cost of a mentored youth per year is approximately $1,500 compared to $20,000 for a youth to receive drug/alcohol treatment in a single year; and more than 130 times ($200,000) for a youth in the juvenile justice system
• Mentored youth are less likely to bully, initiate drug and alcohol use and reduce the chances of teen pregnancy
