Friends for Youth


Founded in 1979, Friends to Youth Mentoring Services program has helped nearly 2,000 youth-in-need reach their full potential. Our 90% success rate of creating long-term mentoring matches is far above the national average. Studies have consistently shown that youth in our program improve their motivation and school performance, demonstrate increased self-esteem and resiliency, and rarely have future involvement with the Juvenile Justice System. Mentoring works!
