Right now 3,000 young people in Massachusetts are spending their time on a waiting list, instead of with the mentor they need. Many are right here in our neighborhoods, and they're in desperate need of mentors who can relate to them. As little as an hour of your week can change a young person's life, and lead to a friendship that can last a lifetime.
Since 2005, Mass Mentoring Partnership has teamed up with the Boston Red Sox to create the Red Sox Mentoring Challenge to help recruit more caring adults as mentors. At the helm as honorary campaign chairman is NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell, who serves on the board of MENTOR/National Mentoring Partnership.
