The statistics stand on their own.
According to Jo Brewer, coordinator of the Love A Child mentoring program in Henry County, mentoring is a total benefit.
Self esteem in children who are being mentored increases. Attendance goes up. Academics go up. Behavior problems go down. First time drug use goes down 46 percent.
And those, Brewer said, are just the benefits the child being mentored receives. The adults doing the mentoring often say they get just as much, if not more, out of the mentor-mentee relationship.
