MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership and PeacePlayers
About the cause
MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership: MENTOR’s mission is to fuel the quality and quantity of mentoring relationships for America’s young people and to close the mentoring gap for the one in three young people growing up without this critical support. For more than 25 years, MENTOR has served the mentoring field by providing a public voice; developing and delivering resources to mentoring programs nationwide; and promoting quality for mentoring through evidence-based standards, innovative research and essential tools. With your help, they can ensure that all youth have the support they need through mentoring relationships to succeed at home, school and, ultimately, work.
PeacePlayers: PeacePlayers uses the power of sport to unite, educate and inspire young people to create a more peaceful world. They offer sport programming, peace education and leadership development to those living in communities in conflict, and they challenge the hate that is driven by the fear of our differences. Your donation will help PeacePlayers bridge divides between people through the game of basketball and develop young leaders to help change perceptions.
