The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) supports mentoring for children and youth from disadvantaged circumstances through several of our programs. We believe that caring and capable adults can make a critical difference in the lives of children and youth in need. Mentoring is a proven method to ensure students complete their education. Youth with a mentor more readily attend and engage in school and are therefore more likely to finish high school and continue their education.
The Corporation for National and Community Service is a vital supply line to America's nonprofit community, providing grants, volunteers, training, and other resources to help meet pressing needs in education, housing, the environment, public safety, disaster relief, and other areas.
