Many children and youth are facing an increase of life challenges without the support systems they need. YouthStorm is working to turn the tide on this trend by providing relational support and development through trained mentors. Mentoring helps children and youth build healthy relationships, make responsible decisions, improve grades and attendance in school, avoid “at risk” behavior, and prepare proactively for their next step in life whether it be higher education or a vocation. We do this through mentoring and enrichment programs.
