In high schools across the country, mentoring programs need to be implemented in responsible and effective ways.

Mentoring – which typically involves a one-to-one, supportive relationship between a student and an adult – has been linked with positive outcomes, such as improved connection to school and adults, lower dropout indicators and higher achievement.

More students than ever are graduating high school and gaps in achievement among racial groups are closing, but for teens who didn't graduate high school, having a caring adult in their life might have made a difference. Mentoring is one effective strategy to prevent dropouts promoted by the National Dropout Prevention Center/Network.

Establishing a program that allows high school students to be paired with [verified] adults in the community, and requiring a meeting of at least once a week between the two; would allow more major cities and states to experience the increase in student attendance rates and active alertness that many schools have seen sense implementing their programs.
