One hour a week can make a big difference in a young person’s future. Mentor Michigan supports nearly 250 organizations around the state that are changing lives by matching mentors with young people. Mentor Michigan provides those organizations with training and research. It fosters partnerships with businesses, faith-based and nonprofit organizations, schools, colleges and universities, and state and local government to support mentoring. Mentor Michigan also builds public awareness about the importance of and the need for mentors by urging caring adults to “Pass It On,” because sharing a little of yourself with a young person can reward both of you with lifelong benefits.  For volunteer opportunities visit http://www.michigan.gov/mentormichigan/0,1607,7-193-27042-78083–,00.html
