The benefits of a mentor/mentee relationship are both immediate and long term, studies show, and those results are borne out at Winning Futures, where between 85-91 percent of our mentees last school year said our programs taught them how to achieve their career goals, attain job-readiness skills, improve study skills and gain confidence.
Nonprofits like ours, that can help change lives and a community, need workers and financial support. Those are among the reasons the global #GivingTuesday social media campaign was launched in 2012 and has continued every Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the U.S.
So this year, please consider giving to Winning Futures on Nov. 28 and throughout the year as a donor, a mentor, an event sponsor or join one of our other efforts to help give students a winning future.
