The Mission of The Mentoring Network, Inc. is to provide school-based, direct-to-youth mentoring that will improve life outcomes for vulnerable and disengaged children by developing resilience skills, supporting the development of personal strengths, and increasing self-sufficiency.
77% of the kids who are being actively mentored show improvement in behavior. 85% become more caring. 86% grow in friendship building skills. 73% of our actively mentored kids improve their grades. Each of these helps create a better future for both the child and the world. “Mentoring has shown me that younger kids look up to adults for guidance. This program has made me realize that if we don't show the younger generation what it means to work than they won't have all the skills that we had to learn when we were young. I also have learned that for some kids, life and school are harder for them than others, and by being a mentor I can show that child that someone cares enough to help them through the tough times.” –Mentor—2 years in the program

Reviews for The Mentoring Network Inc.
The Mentoring Network is the epitome of goodness in Idaho! Bringing caring adults to children in need to give them an opportunity for a positive connection with an adult is something that every child needs. Donna Shines, the MN Board Members and all Volunteers do great things for Idaho!
An boy with some anger issues, has a constant adult in his life. No matter what he may or may not have done each week, she shows up to be One Of His People. It makes a difference. A girl who struggles with self esteem has an adult that thinks she is wonderful and treats her as such. It makes a difference. A young boy working on making better decisions in his life, has a role model that is firm, but fun. It makes a difference. These are examples of the mentors that come to our school. Our kids are so thankful for the mentors provided by The Mentoring Network and we are, too. South Middle School
