According to The National Mentoring Partnership, youth who are at-risk for not completing high school are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college if they have a mentor.  These youth are 81% more likely to report participating in an extracurricular activity and more than twice as likely to hold a leadership position in those activities than youth without a mentor.
